Cambium LLP Awarded Innovate UK Funding and Partners with Liverpool 5G for NetZeroNet (NZN) Development

Last Updated on: 6th June 2024, 06:49 am

Cambium LLP, a leader in sustainable smart innovation and strategic collaboration, is delighted to announce its recent success in securing funding from Innovate UK.

This funding, part of the “Innovate UK Net Zero Living Digital” competition, will support Cambium’s ambitious NetZeroNet (NZN) project. The NZN initiative aims to quantify the environmental impact of telecommunications networks and services. Cambium is thrilled to partner with Liverpool 5G Ltd on this project.

NZN builds on Cambium’s prior work to develop a comprehensive method, framework, data analytical models, and tools supporting the sustainable development of telecommunications networks and services. This project is vital as these technologies play a significant role in decarbonisation efforts, yet their own environmental impact needs to be assessed and managed.

Tony O’Donnell, Partner at Cambium LLP, said: “We are delighted to receive this funding from Innovate UK, which not only recognises our commitment to innovation but also highlights the importance of addressing the carbon impact of telecommunications infrastructure.

“Leveraging Liverpool 5G’s experience in deploying 5G networks to deliver innovative high-value services, we hope this project will create assets that will help the telecommunications sector contribute positively to the development of a net-zero economy.”

Collaborating closely with Liverpool 5G Ltd, NZN will focus on modelling ‘use-phase carbon emissions’ for a well-defined network configuration. This forms a basis for various activities aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of telecommunications infrastructure.

As data handling networks and IT systems grow, so will energy consumption and associated emissions. However, innovation within the network or at its edge has the potential to mitigate these impacts. NZN will address the increasing need to profile both the energy costs and related emissions of 5G networks.

Rosemary Kay, Project Director of Liverpool 5G, commented: “We are pleased to collaborate with Cambium LLP on this important project. By working together, we aim to quantify and highlight the net environmental impact of our networks. This will enable us to demonstrate that our state-of-the-art network-enabled services can support decarbonisation objectives and deliver truly sustainable value to our partners, users, and stakeholders.”
