Decarbonizing industries with connectivity and 5G
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel’s sixth report on climate change-a combined review of scientific research prepared by nearly 300 scientists across 66 countries-serves as a powerful and clearest awakening so far to the global warming crisis. There was no doubt the panel recognized that the rise in global temperature-it rose to 1.1 ° C since the Industrial Revolution-was due to human activity. Without the magnitude and immediate reduction of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, the temperature would rise between 1.5 ° C and 2 ° C before the end of the century. That, the panel showed, would put all people at a “greater risk of going through“ tipping points, ”thresholds ahead where certain effects are inevitable even if temperatures are restored. later.
Corporations and industries need to redouble their efforts to reduce and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions with speed and accuracy-but in order to do so, they must also commit to profound operational and organizational change. Cellular infrastructure, particularly 5G, is one of the many digital and process -driven technology tools that organizations can use to facilitate decarbonization efforts.
5G and other cellular technologies enable more interconnected chains and augmentation networks, improve data sharing, optimize systems, and increase operational efficiency. These capabilities will soon contribute to an exponential acceleration in the world’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
Industries such as energy, manufacturing, and transportation may have the greatest impact on decarbonization efforts through the use of 5G, as they are some of the most greenhouse-gas emitting industries, and all rely on connectivity to connect with each other through the communication network. infrastructure.
The higher performance and improved efficiency of 5G-which delivers more connected data with the fastest speed, lowest latency, increased reliability, and increased network capacity-can help businesses and businesses. public infrastructure provider that will focus on business innovation and reducing harmful emissions. This requires effective digital management and monitoring of distributed operations with robustness and analytical understanding. 5G will help factories, logistics networks, power companies, etc. be more efficient, more dynamic, and more purposeful in line with their clear purpose of sustainability through a better vision and more powerful network configurations.
This report, “Industries decarbonizing connectivity and 5G,” argues that the capabilities driven by broadband cellular connectivity primarily, though not exclusively, through 5G network infrastructure are unique, powerful. , and immediately enable carbon reduction efforts. They have the potential to make a difference to accelerate decarbonization efforts, as more interconnected supply chains, transportation, and energy networks share data to increase efficiency and productivity, so optimized systems for lower carbon emissions.
