Submission + - Alacatel-Lucent Shrinks Mobile Cell Tower to Cube->

pbahra writes: French mobile telephone infrastructure manufacturer Alacatel-Lucent today unveiled technology that shrinks a mobile cell tower to a box the size of a Rubik’s cube, potentially changing the structure of the cellular network, reducing greenhouse emissions and bringing mobile broadband into new areas. According to Wim Sweldens, president of wireless activities for Alcatel-Lucent, by reducing the technology from something the size of a filing cabinet, networks would reduce the total cost of ownership by half, as well as halving the global CO2 emissions from the mobile industry — currently equivalent of 15 million cars a year.
