Future energy–efficient wireless communication

Abstract: The overall traffic volume in wireless communication networks has grown tremendously in recent years, fueled primarily by an enormous uptake in the use of mobile broadband, a growth that is expected to continue. In addition to mobile broadband, the transformation to a fully networked society where anything that benefits from being connected will be connected, will further accelerate the usage of wireless access. To handle this traffic increase in an affordable manner, as well as to meet the general quest for a sustainable society, it is important to continuously improve the energy efficiency of wireless networks.

Energy consumption aspects in 5G systems

Abstract: 5G systems are being designed to deliver a high diversity of communication services with high quality while being resource efficient in terms of cost, energy and spectrum. As in every system design, there are conflicting requirements in 5G that need to be mitigated, for instance there is a trade-off to be made between user experience and energy consumption. Read more.
