Standards for Energy Efficient Virtualization, Content Distribution and Big Data in Beyond 5G Networks

by   Jaafar M. H. Elmirghani, et al.

Power consumption in communication networks and the supporting computing systems continues to increase due to the increase in traffic and processing requirements, and due to the relatively slower improvements in energy efficiency. Future networks are expected to continue to move computing algorithms and capabilities into the network including increased use of analytics, machine learning and intelligence applied to big data in the network, with content caching and virtualization. This article summarizes the key features of five new IEEE standards currently being developed to improve the energy efficiency of networks beyond 5G.
