Dr Hassan Osman gives a school seminar on “Quality of Experience and Energy Efficiency in 5G Networks”

Time: 14:00-15:00, Wednesday, 16 November 2022

Location: JLT, Jennison
Chair: Dr Huiling Zhu


Until recently, it was enough being online and reachable for the smartphones users dealing with the existing applications to complete successfully their data sessions at adequate quality of experience whether they were retrieving a map, posting a picture, browsing the internet and downloading or sharing a video. With 5G deployments underway, connectivity is evolving further to provide massively greater capacity and smarter data bearers with artificial intelligence embedded progressively everywhere across the network. This evolved 5G connectivity will be transformational, featuring unprecedented experiences that paved the way for new real-time (low latency) applications not viable in the recent past, advanced use cases and extended the wireless services to new industries. As a result, managing the Quality of Experience (QoE) in such a network is very complex and necessitates a complete revolution for the traditional performance management systems. Data collection must be in real-time, with end-to-end visibility across all interfaces and systems.

This performance causes 5G services to highly enhance smart cities, specifically through the transportation and public safety and security fields as well as through citizen services, making 5G of great value to telecom operators. However, this performance comes at the cost of increasing the overall energy consumption of a mobile network, which in return increases the cost of operating this network, and the amount of air pollutant emissions, in the case where there is no active intervention to decrease them. These key points make 5G a driver for the use of sustainability within the telecommunications industry, in a time where energy efficiency and sustainability are crucial to combat climate change.
