Nokia Says Green Plan Provides ‘Chance To Make A Profit’
By using new technology and software and shutting down base stations during times of low traffic, Nokia said it would reduce energy consumption of its GSM and WCDMA base stations to 650 watts and 300 watts, respectively, from the current levels of 800 watts and 500 watts.
