Going green is a big responsibility to leave smaller footprints. It’s good for business as well as environment. We at Bigfoot Broadband aim to reduce carbon footprints by continuously exploring use of greener technologies and conserve the resources we all need to thrive. In this attempt to reduce energy consumption, we adopted WiBro – a wireless broadband technology which works as an alternative to cable and DSL and allows the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access.
If we compare the different broadband access technologies for mass deployment – DSL, 3G and 4G, WiBro access network consumes the lowest energy for each GB delivered. For each energy unit (KWH) consumed, WiBro delivers 98 GB as compared to DSL (30GB), 3G (1GB) and 4G (16GB).
Note: Conversion to Carbon footprint is as per Recommendations on Approach towards Green Telecommunications -TRAI -April 12, 2011
The above mentioned calculations are specific to power consumed in various access networks and excludes core network and CPE/Mobile Phones. For a service provider, approximately 70% energy is consumed due to access network and balance in Core Network & Datacenter/Switching centers.
In cellular wireless networks (3G/4G), a lot of energy is wasted in the power amplifier and through the antenna feeder cable. These problems get eliminated with WiBro access network as it runs on low transmit powers (1W) and uses direct antenna coupling and directional antennas in each segment. The minimal energy wastage makes WiBro the Greenest Broadband Access Technology.
Our team at Bigfoot Broadband continuously strives for innovation in the field of networking & distribution in a way that provides more value to the customer and is also environment-friendly. Let’s work towards a greener and better tomorrow!
