Executive Summary

Cellular networks are currently facing significant challenges as mobile Internet access adoption continues to grow over the subscriber base. The challenge that network operators are facing is that Internet data traffic consumes considerably more resources than voice calls, necessitating in that respect significant capacity enhancements. Further, this rise in system utilization has caused a considerable increase in the energy consumption expenditure of both the access network components and the user terminals; in the former case causing a significant increase in cost, for the second case a reduction in the usability of battery operated terminals and for both cases a peak in the carbon footprint of telecoms equipment.
