‘Just Enough Networks’ to respond to user requirements

Preview

Develop just enough networks: network whose dimension, performance, resource usage and energy consumption are just enough to satisfy users needs.

Communication networks are often presented as a necessary means of reducing the impact on the environment of various sectors of industry. In practice, the roll-out of new generations of mobile broadband networks has required increased communication resources for wireless access networks. This has proved an effective approach in terms of performance but concerns remain about its energy cost and more generally its environmental impacts. Exposure to electromagnetic fields also remains a cause of concern despite existing protection limits. In the JEN project, we propose to develop just enough networks: network whose dimension, performance, resource usage and energy consumption are just enough to satisfy users needs. Along with designing energy-efficient and sober networks, we will provide multi-indicators models that could help policy-makers and inform the public debate.
