The aviation industry is undergoing massive changes. Smart airport concepts rely on a profound digital infrastructure to enable autonomous and sustainable operations. Ericsson’s firsthand experience with airports indicates that private 4G and 5G networks play a key role in enabling digitalization. In this blog, we describe the challenges and trends in the industry and the role of private networks to realize a sustainable future.

The powerful combination of 5G and the internet of things, complemented by supporting players such as mobile edge computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, are billed as key to digitizing vertical industries and commerce. The same companies looking to buy and sell this connected digital transformation are also grappling with the long-term implications of individual and collective sustainability.
Network energy performance is an increasingly prevalent issue for mobile network operators (MNOs) in North America. If 5G is deployed in the same way as previous generations, energy consumption of mobile networks would increase dramatically. This is unsustainable in terms of cost as well as environmental impact.
$30 Million Federal Emergency Connectivity Fund Grant Largest Given to a Library System
HOUSTON & BELLEVUE, Wash., February 9, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Harris County Public Library (HCPL) is teaming up with T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and Google to launch HCPL Connected, a community-wide internet connectivity campaign for Harris County residents in need of online access. The program will provide 40,000 T-Mobile 5G MiFi hotspots with unlimited data on T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network and 15,000 Chromebook laptop computers.
We believe that 5G is the connectivity fabric that will weave everything and everyone together. 5G will generate significant economic growth and resilience, drive numerous industry transformations and sustainability benefits through digitization, and ultimately enrich lives across the globe.
New use cases stemming from 5G networks will reduce U.S. carbon footprint by up to 330.8 MMtCO2e — the equivalent of removing 72 million passenger vehicles from the road, report projects
WASHINGTON, D.C.; Jan. 26, 2022 – 5G connectivity will play a significant role in enabling the U.S. to meet the Biden Administration’s climate change goals, with 5G-enabled use cases projected to make up to a 20% contribution toward the country’s carbon emission reduction targets by 2025, according to a new Accenture (NYSE: ACN) study commissioned by CTIA, the wireless industry association.
During a panel discussion at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Kirti Gupta, VP of economic strategy at Qualcomm, claimed that the green outlook for 5G greatly surpasses that of previous generations of cellular technology. Further, she argued that the transformative promise of 5G, and because it is designed to “connect everything, everywhere,” it is paramount that it enables a sustainable future.
In this episode of Will 5G Change the World?, Ericsson Chief Technology Officer for North America, Mike Murphy, discusses how network infrastructure modernization and other factors can help operators break the energy curve as they upgrade to 5G. Further, Murphy discusses Ericsson’s own sustainability initiatives, and shares his thoughts on how 5G can enable other applications with positive impacts on sustainability.
