Abstract: The rapid adoption of Smart Phones has triggered an explosive growth of mobile Internet applications. China Mobile has observed 81 times traffic growth over past 5 years, and it has been the common consensus that there will be another 1000x traffic load increase by year 2020. Unfortunately, the ARPU growth curve is believed to be much flatter. As the world largest mobile service provider, China Mobile is facing a big challenge to figure out a technical road map to increase its network capacity dramatically while keep the TCO at a reasonable level to maintain its viability. To this end, we envision increasing importance of making our network green. The extension of classic Shannon theory from scalar domain to vector domain 20 years ago gave the birth of MIMO system, and has been supporting the sustainable development of wireless system all long. How will Shannon theory perform in new green era? Is it out-of-date or reborn as a new “the one”？ This presentation will share our vision and staged R&D effort marching toward green.
