How Sustainable Are Our Mobile Networks? A Global Look
Webinar / Feb 2021 / Sustainability, MWL

A report by InterDigital and Mobile World Live surveyed members of the global mobile industry to help quantify the impact of our increasingly expanded and interconnected mobile networks and growing energy demands.

This webinar gathers international experts from around the mobile value chain in a discussion aimed to better understand the main culprits behind our burgeoning energy consumption, the key motivators driving the move towards more sustainable networks, the solutions that bring us closer to that goal, as well as the surprising global disparities on the path to sustainability. Throughout the discussion, panelists will explore the vital question – must countries take an orthodox, unified approach to achieve sustainability in global mobile networks?
