Why Energy Management is Critical to 5G Success

by Vertiv

May 21, 2021

Even though 5G networks are up to 90% more efficient than their 4G predecessors, they still require far more energy due to increased network density, heavy reliance on IT systems, and increased network use and accelerated traffic growth.

Telecommunications operators must address these challenges in two ways:
• Adopting energy efficiency best practices across networks
• Encouraging their customers to adopt 5G-enabled services to reduce consumption and emissions in all walks of life

These are the central findings of the new research paper from STL Partners and Vertiv: Why Energy Management is Critical to 5G Success. The paper examines the challenges facing today's telcos and outlines several best practices aimed at mitigating increasing energy consumption, emissions, and costs.
