Case Study: NTT DOCOMO
January 9, 2019 Category: Energy Efficiency
Networks have become pervasive and ubiquitous in everyday life. It is hard to imagine, especially in the developed nations, what life was like when there was no mobile broadband and services on top. However, this does come at a cost. An important aspect to consider is the energy consumption of the network, where core networks like data centres demand constant temperatures stabilised by either heating or cooling; while radio access networks require electricity to transmit and receive signals.
With 5G expected to drive network densification with its new requirements, demands are expected to increase the energy consumed by the network, albeit at better energy efficiency. It will also mean that carbon emissions will increase, aggravating climate change. Calls for a non-traditional approach where electricity consumption can be done sustainably while reducing the costs of energy are needed. It is for these reasons why NTT DOCOMO developed Green Base Station, an environment-friendly and sustainable energy supply scheme for radio base stations.
