Energy Efficiency of Paramount Importance to 5G Rollout

Whilst many will focus on the RF and data capabilities of the new 5G mobile communications system, energy efficiency is one of the primary design aims. Not only will operators be able to save on OPEX, but with cellular telecommunications continuing to grow, energy efficient 5G systems will enable green operation.
