About ComSoc

The goal of Technical Committee on Green Communications and Computing (TCGCC), IEEE Communications Society, is to provide a platform for its members, and the whole research, development, standardization, and service community of energy- and/or resource- efficient and/or environment-sustainable communications, computing, and relevant systems, to interact and exchange technical ideas, to identify major research and development challenges, and to collaborate and investigate solutions in the development of energy-sustainable, resource-saving, and environment-friendly green communications and computing technologies. The areas this committee addresses are quite inter-disciplinary due to the inherent features of the relevant green topics. This committee not only addresses greening communications, computing, and relevant systems but also investigate using communications, computing, and relevant systems to achieve green objectives for the sustainable world.

Strengthening the Backbone for 5G and Beyond

This month we take a look at the optical transmission that without which all of the fancy wireless systems would not be able to access the internet. The bandwidth pressure on the optical backbone will be at least as intense as it is on the wireless access. But never fear, the engineers in this area are also making strides. So this month we hear from Kevin and Yu Rong at British Telecom on their recent successful trial of a 3Tb/s super channel, as well as some of their thoughts on the future for optical networking.
