A new ICT industry consortium ‘Green Touch’ has been launched to conquer wasted energy in the ICT sector. The forum is an initiative of Alcatel-Lucent Bell labs. It has been created to develop industry wide technological innovations and practices to reduce the energy use in the sector significantly.
‘The minimum required energy to power the worldwide telecom network coul dbe 10,000 times smaller than today’s network use’, says to Gee Rittenhouse, head of research at Bell Labs.
Among the members are equipment providers (Alcatel-Lucent, Freescale semiconductors), telecom providers (AT&T, China Mobile, Swisscom, Telefonica), associations (foundation for mobile communications) and universities (MIT, Melbourne University, the French INRIA institute).
A promising initiative with ambitious goals !
