SingTel Joins GSMA's Mobile Energy Efficiency Initiative

Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) is joining the GSMA's Mobile Energy Efficiency (MEE) Benchmarking initiative. The result from the benchmarking will help to identify areas to raise power consumption efficiency. These include reviewing the design of radio access network architecture through techniques like free air cooling and insulation paint for base station shelter to improve the energy efficiency and accelerate adoption of renewable green energy solutions in these areas.

SingTel said participation in this initiative will extend to its wholly-owned subsidiary, Optus, and regional mobile associates, including Airtel (India and Africa), Advanced Info Service (Thailand), Globe Telecom (Philippines), Pacific Bangladesh Telecom Ltd (Bangladesh), Telkomsel (Indonesia) and Warid (Pakistan).
