Summary: The global mobile data traffic is growing at an exponential pace. 5G is supposed to handle 100-1000 times higher throughput than current networks, but this comes at the price of a much higher energy consumption and cost, unless we can make future networks radically more energy efficient. As a first step, we need to make the energy consumption load adaptive, to save power when the data traffic is low. As a second step, we need to design the network architecture with energy efficiency in mind. In this webinar, different strategies for designing energy-efficient 5G networks will be discussed and compared. By taking a holistic approach, we will see how a mix of Massive MIMO and small cells is the most attractive solution. The speaker received the 2018 IEEE Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications for his work on this topic.
