Friday, 10 December 2021 19:30

On Call It's another tale from the world of telephony where everything goes wrong in this week's On Call .

Today's story comes from a Register reader Regomised as "Greg."

Monday, 15 November 2021 08:00

Paid Feature Growing large-scale deployments of 5G base stations and data centres – known to be heavy consumers of energy – are making carbon emissions a serious impediment to the development of the ICT industry.

In response, major operators and Internet giants have taken on the responsibility to build zero-carbon networks and achieve carbon neutrality. ITU statistics in 2020 show that the ICT industry empowered various industries to reduce about 7.8 G tons of equivalent carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, accounting for 15% of the total annual emissions.
