When the subject of the Industrial Revolution is raised, what images come to mind? You might think of the steam engine, the expansion of the railways or electrification literally illuminating the world. For many, it’s a period that also sparks visceral reactions, with thoughts of living in a city such as Manchester, Birmingham or London in the nineteenth century, with factories spewing smog and soot into the air and dumping pollutants directly into rivers and streams.

Closing the American Digital Divide This Decade

Summary: 

We have just released a point-of-view paper suggesting that it is possible to close the American digital divide—between those who, by virtue of their location, can access high-speed internet and those that can’t—in this decade. But it will not happen without changing our perspectives about what matters most and the technologies we will use to close the digital divide.

5G Energy Consumption: What's the Impact of 5G NR in Real Networks?

Summary: 

The ultra-lean design of 5G NR can drastically decrease network-energy consumption compared to any previous cellular standard, including 4G LTE. Reaping the benefits of the standard will make it possible to optimize the energy usage for a network, even allowing a combined 2G, 3G, 4G and full 5G deployment to consume less total energy than a corresponding network without 5G. Find out how.
