Legacy Versus Open RAN: Power Consumption In 5G Radios
Open Radio Access Network (RAN) is picking up traction and commercial interest in 2023, with multiple operators actively considering the technology for their new and existing 5G networks. Whilst, 5G deployments have matured and mobile operators are looking toward the next wave of monetization, sustainability is becoming a critical topic and is now part of the criteria for vendor selection.
With 70% to 80% of the energy consumption consumed by the radio – this is a prime area for optimization, where multiple initiatives have been designed and implemented to reduce its impact.
