In order to comply with the same following are the objectives
Passive Telecom Infrastructure Sharing: GTL Infra’s business model is based on sharing the passive Telecom infrastructure. All the operators in India have actively started to share the cellular infrastructure, this helps to reduce the visual proliferation and to optimize the use of national resources.
Reduce Energy Consumption: Green Shelters, or outdoor BTS are being encouraged by all the CMSP’s as it reduces the power consumption, by keeping the temperatures cool for longer duration.
Use of Alternative Energy Sources: Alternative sources of energy i.e. solar, wind, and bio-mass are being encouraged wherever feasible. A major thrust is also being given to bio-fuels, like B-20 and pilots are being run by the operators.
With the huge growth in Telecom sector day by day, more population is being exposed to the low-level Electromagnetic Fields produced by the base station antennas that are mounted on cellular mobile towers and by handheld mobile telephone sets/radio terminals.
