UGREEN intends to develop new solutions to reduce the energy consumption of LTE-U and Wi-Fi networks taking into account the future coexistence of the two technologies and the inherent overlap of coverage. The main innovation of this project is the optimization of the energy consumption of these networks in the component that has been ignored - the Access Points.
The need to increase capacity and an increasing number of terminals will lead to the installation of small cells in increasing numbers, with the consequent increase in the energy consumption of the access networks. It is therefore vital to increase their energy efficiency, allowing for sustainable growth and control of the energy bill.
