A new artificial intelligence (AI) model developed by researchers at the U.K.'s University of Surrey could boost U.K. telecommunications providers' bandwidth efficiency and augment mobile networks' environmental sustainability.

The researchers said the model could help telecoms save 76% in network resources compared to the most resilient Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) system.

Surrey's Ning Wang said, "This solution can dynamically adapt to changes in demand, yet with significantly reduced necessity of reconfiguring the network. This could make our communications networks more robust and more efficient—but the underlying model could have even broader application."
