O-RAN as an Enabler for Energy Efficiency in 5G Networks

In this blog post, we provide a general overview of ways to improve EE in contemporary mobile networks. This is followed up by some representative examples of algorithms aiming at EE optimization at different levels, with a focus on the utilization of ML techniques. We then put it in the context of O-RAN where the deployment of EE-focused aspects and algorithms is discussed.

Green Communication and Computing for 2030

Since the UN General Assembly in 1987, sustainable development has become the aspiration of modern societies. The development of ICT, has contributed remarkably to global energy consumption, although the translation of the data traffic volume to energy use and greenhouse gas emissions is not straightforward. According to SMART2020 report, the ICT carbon footprint was supposed to increase about 3 times between 2002 and 2020. However, newer reports, corrected these predictions and showed a stabilized trend in the ICT footprint.

5G and Rimedo Labs – how we fit in the current market

For decades now, telecommunications solutions have been constantly changing the face of the Polish and global economy, as well as our everyday life. In the context of the next development leap towards the so-called industry 4.0, wireless telecommunications, and in particular, 5G will play an important role. In August 2020, the Poznan University of Technology granted RIMEDO Labs license to use the university's know-how in the field of algorithms used in telecommunications networks.

Will there be 6G?

Every odd generation provided the “new” type of service to the mobile communications (1G started voice in mobile communications, 3G started Internet access, 5G started verticals), while every even generation provided the “good” solution for the services approached by the odd generation.
