Wireless and cloud are converging trends supported by the increased availability of affordable, powerful portable devices, convenient and useful applications, and highspeed wireless broadband infrastructure. This convergence is expected to be a key driver of traffic growth on telecommunications networks in the future.
This white paper analyzed the various components of the wireless cloud ecosystem to identify the dominant energy consumers. The Centre for Energy-Efficient Telecommunications (CEET) model explored the impact of the wireless cloud, accounting for all aspects of the ecosystem including devices, broadband access technology, and metro
and core telecommunications, in addition to data centers.
