In an ever more connected world we need to be mindful of the environmental impact of our digital life. We would like to invite you to discover the value of intelligent energy saving and build ways to make it more understandable and visualize the value. Help us make the world’s networks more sustainable and efficient.

During the event, we will be bringing proprietary data for you to chew on (that you may of course enrich with publicly available data of your choice). You will also have the support of our experts in the field to mentor you.”

Insights

We understand that demonstrating the value of energy saving in network technology can be somewhat abstract. We hope to see you develop and design ways to visualise the value of energy saving solutions effectively. Highlighting these benefits in a more tangible way can provide invaluable insight for telecom operators and consumers around the world looking to increase their sustainability. It is important that both the environmental impact reduction and the cost saving aspects of the technology are understood.

In an ever more connected world we need to be mindful of the environmental impact our digital life has. Each of us are using mobile networks every day, from simple smartphone usage to IoT to 5G connections that power a household. By enhancing visualization of energy saving in mobile networks, you can have a direct impact in enabling more sustainable and energy efficient networks all over the world.

What We'll Bring

During the event, we will offer proprietary mobility data and data about coverage of networks for you to chew on. The mobility data includes location, direction and amount of traffic in the Uusimaa region in the year 2019. The data set is given in a 500mb .csv file. You may of course enrich the data given by us with publicly available data of your choice.

You will also have the support of our experts in the field to mentor you. Our experts can guide towards the desired solution and guide you towards the information you might need in your solutions.

Elisa is hosting a Pre-Event for participants of the Eco Mode Challenge prior to the main hackathon weekend. Teams can participate in the Pre-Event both online and on-premise and get a headstart for the challenge.
