6G Flagship Webinar on 'Green Networking in B5G'

Couple of weeks back, 6G Flagship held a webinar on 'Green Networking in B5G'. Abstract as follows:

Network traffic grows at a rate of 30% to 40% per year, doubling every two years. Traffic growth is outpacing the efficiency gains made by new hardware. If no action is taken quickly, the amount of power used will rise to unsustainable levels.

The webinar discussed the sustainability problems that current communications systems confront. Then, introduced several initiatives to realize the goal of green communication networks, data centers, and edge processing. Finally, the panel discussed how ICT might help green various industries.
