Algorithm predicts congestion in mobile radio networks

Network supervision is advancing thanks to artificial intelligence. One Orange laboratory in Belfort has offered further proof of this by developing a predictive analysis solution that can prevent mobile network traffic overload. An algorithm can now detect imminent congestion 30 minutes before it occurs, with a success rate of over 80%. This predictive maintenance solution […]

Decarbonising digital technology with innovation

Hidden from sight, Internet infrastructure has a substantial environmental impact. In an article published in 2018, the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) estimated that the digital sector eats up close to 10% of the world’s electricity consumption, 40% attributable to networks, 30% to datacenters and 30% to terminals. Base-stations with lower fossil fuel […]

5G : energy efficiency “by design”

The progress made by mobile networks over the years is not measured only by their operational performance and the service delivered to the end customer. They are also judged on their ability to take into account societal and environmental issues, particularly those related to energy consumption. On this subject, the progress made is substantial and […]
