Huawei Joins GreenTouch Consortium

Huawei has joined the GreenTouch consortium as a founding member, joining 15 other companies.

The consortium, which was organized by Bell Labs, aims to create the technologies needed to make communications networks 1000 times more energy efficient than they are today. Specifically, the Green Touch initiative aims to develop and demonstrate fundamental technologies within five years that could lead to radical redesign of how networks are built and operated.

In addition to expanding its membership, this week the GreenTouch consortium reached a crucial milestone in its development -- convening an inaugural meeting of its founding members to establish an operating framework, set out guidelines for intellectual property management and define technology parameters.
