Tikona’s Green Broadband Initiative

Tikona Broadband Network’s Wibro accessnetwork is among the finest in the country. The company has seen a lot of growth in the six years it has been in business. In a commitment to the environment, Tikona has ensures that its activities are environmentally friendly. Not only that, but ensuring that it follows the mode of sustainability, the broadband company has also managed to reduced energy consumptions and costs associated with it.

Among competing broadband access technologies for mass deployment including DSL 3G and 4G, Wibro access network consumes lowest energy for each GB delivered. For each energy unit (KWH) consumed, Wibro delivers 98 GB as compared to DSL (30GB), 3G (1GB) and 4G (16GB).

Conversion to Carbon footprint is as per Recommendations on Approach towards Green Telecommunications -TRAI -April 12, 2011

Above calculation are specific to Power consumed in various access Networks and excludes core network and CPE/Mobile Phones .For a service provider, approximately 70 per cent energy is consumed due to access network and balance in Core Network & Datacentre/Switching centres.

In cellular wireless networks (3G/4G), BTS (Base Transreceiving Station or Base station) is the main energy hungry component which consume maximum energy. Within base station, a huge amount of energy is wasted in the power amplifier and through the antenna feeder cable. In DSL networks, power is consumed in DSLAM and is wasted in copper loops. Below Table summarises Power consumed by Access Node per subscriber

In comparison, Wibro network Access Network consumes 0.38 W/Sub due to Low Transmit powers (1W), direct antenna coupling and directional Antennas in each segment, energy wastage is minimised making WiBro as Greenest Broadband access technology.
