Abstract

The continuous rise in the levels of greenhouse gases due to energy consumption and the influence of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) massive use is constantly increasing. In the sector of communication networks for mission critical, security and public safety applications the environmental issue becomes crucial even if traditionally underestimated to the advantage of data throughput, coverage and voice transmission properties. Actually, one of the fundamental requirements of public safety infrastructures is the total and continuous coverage throughout the day in the served area. This constant and high energy demand makes mission critical networks particularly interesting for a comparative study on the consumption of the systems and related different technologies. This work aims to investigate the current energy consumption of principal standards for the Professional Mobile Radio sector, in particular TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) and DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) technologies, providing new and ad-hoc performance indicators with respect to energy efficiency.
