Researchers from Ericsson AB, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Aalto University and Telecom Italia launched a new project – 5GrEEn – in Stockholm on January 15-16. The project team will focus on designing Green 5G Mobile networks, a clean slate solution for environmentally friendly mobile networks of the future for a “connected society”.
In 2020, mobile access networks are expected to experience a thousand-fold increase in traffic volume compared to 2010. This calls for a substantial deployment densification. The network will not only target human interaction but also virtually, anything connected following the “Internet-of-Things” vision.
