“The OpenUK-led consortium aims to enable a circular economy, based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems.
The blueprint — which is being submitted as a COP26 proposal — is based on the “three opens” of open source software, open hardware and open data. It also favours dramatically improved onsite and offsite facilities for server and network component repair and lifecycle extension. (Speaking to The Stack, OpenUK’s CEO Amanda Brock paints a picture of 5G-enabled micro-data centres running on recycled/upcycled servers and network components for edge computing use cases).”
