ETSI ETSI EN 305 174-8 V1.1.1 (2018-01) 7 Modal verbs terminology In the present document "shall", "shall not", "should", "should not", "may", "need not", "will", "will not", "can" and "cannot" are to be interpreted as described in clause 3.2 of the ETSI Drafting Rules (Verbal forms for the expression of provisions). "must" and "must not" are NOT allowed in ETSI deliverables except when used in direct citation. Introduction The increasing interaction between the different elements of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector (hardware, middleware, software and services) supports the concept of convergence in which: • multi-service packages can be delivered over a common infrastructure; • a variety of infrastructures is able to deliver these packages; • a single multi-service-package may be delivered over different infrastructures. As a result of this convergence, the development of new services, applications and content has resulted in: • an increased demand for bandwidth, reliability, quality and performance, with a consequent increase in the demand for power which has implications for cost and, in some cases, availability; • an associated continuous evolution of ICT equipment. It is therefore important to consider the environmental viability of all network elements necessary to deliver the required services in terms of the management of their operational aspects i.e. energy management (including energy efficiency) and the management of the End-of-Life (EoL) of the ICT equipment. NOTE: The term "environmental viability" is used while recognizing that well established treatments of "sustainability" feature three separate viability objectives (environmental, economic and social). For the purposes of this multi-part deliverable, only operational aspects of environmental viability are considered. A wider approach to environmental viability takes other factors into account including the use of raw materials and avoidance of hazardous substances in the construction of infrastructure or ICT equipment- these factors are not considered. New technologies and infrastructure strategies are expected to enable operators to decrease the energy consumption, for a given level of service, of their existing and future infrastructures thus decreasing their costs. This requires a common understanding among market participants that only standards can produce. This multi-part deliverable specifies the general engineering of various broadband infrastructures to enable the most effective energy management (and management of other resources) and the appropriate measures for EoL treatment of ICT equipment. Certain of the standards may specify requirements for interoperability. The present document has been developed against the following background: • Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) such as the ICT equipment used within broadband deployment systems and mobile networks has joined computers, televisions, refrigerators and mobile telephones phones as one the fastest growing waste streams in the European Union (EU) and is expected to grow to more than 12 million tonnes by 2020. • Further to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the European Commission (EC) has issued, and will issue, Directives and Regulations in order to improve e-waste processing of whole industry sectors and producers and users of ICT equipment are obliged to monitor waste processing of that equipment. Independent of national regulation and legislation concerning WEEE, the present document specifies requirements for processes in relation to management of EoL for ICT equipment used within infrastructures of broadband deployment. The objective of the present document is to specify requirements and recommendations for the ICT sector to contribute actively to the WEEE collection objectives as defined in the WEEE Directive.

Introduction

The increasing interaction between the different elements of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector

(hardware, middleware, software and services) supports the concept of convergence in which:

• multi-service packages can be delivered over a common infrastructure;
• a variety of infrastructures is able to deliver these packages;

• a single multi-service-package may be delivered over different infrastructures.

As a result of this convergence, the development of new services, applications and content has resulted in:

• an increased demand for bandwidth, reliability, quality and performance, with a consequent increase in the

demand for power which has implications for cost and, in some cases, availability;

• an associated continuous evolution of ICT equipment.

It is therefore important to consider the environmental viability of all network elements necessary to deliver the required

services in terms of the management of their operational aspects i.e. energy management (including energy efficiency)

and the management of the End-of-Life (EoL) of the ICT equipment.

NOTE: The term "environmental viability" is used while recognizing that well established treatments of

"sustainability" feature three separate viability objectives (environmental, economic and social). For the

purposes of this multi-part deliverable, only operational aspects of environmental viability are considered.

A wider approach to environmental viability takes other factors into account including the use of raw

materials and avoidance of hazardous substances in the construction of infrastructure or ICT equipment-

these factors are not considered.

New technologies and infrastructure strategies are expected to enable operators to decrease the energy consumption, for

a given level of service, of their existing and future infrastructures thus decreasing their costs. This requires a common

understanding among market participants that only standards can produce.

This multi-part deliverable specifies the general engineering of various broadband infrastructures to enable the most

effective energy management (and management of other resources) and the appropriate measures for EoL treatment of

ICT equipment. Certain of the standards may specify requirements for interoperability.

The present document has been developed against the following background:

• Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) such as the ICT equipment used within broadband

deployment systems and mobile networks has joined computers, televisions, refrigerators and mobile

telephones phones as one the fastest growing waste streams in the European Union (EU) and is expected to

grow to more than 12 million tonnes by 2020.

• Further to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the European Commission (EC) has issued, and will issue, Directives and

Regulations in order to improve e-waste processing of whole industry sectors and producers and users of ICT

equipment are obliged to monitor waste processing of that equipment.

Independent of national regulation and legislation concerning WEEE, the present document specifies requirements for

processes in relation to management of EoL for ICT equipment used within infrastructures of broadband deployment.

The objective of the present document is to specify requirements and recommendations for the ICT sector to contribute

actively to the WEEE collection objectives as defined in the WEEE Directive.

Introduction

The increasing interaction between the different elements of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector

(hardware, middleware, software and services) supports the concept of convergence in which:

• multi-service packages can be delivered over a common infrastructure;
• a variety of infrastructures is able to deliver these packages;

• a single multi-service-package may be delivered over different infrastructures.

As a result of this convergence, the development of new services, applications and content has resulted in:

• an increased demand for bandwidth, reliability, quality and performance, with a consequent increase in the

demand for power which has implications for cost and, in some cases, availability;

• an associated continuous evolution of ICT equipment.

It is therefore important to consider the environmental viability of all network elements necessary to deliver the required

services in terms of the management of their operational aspects i.e. energy management (including energy efficiency)

and the management of the End-of-Life (EoL) of the ICT equipment.

NOTE: The term "environmental viability" is used while recognizing that well established treatments of

"sustainability" feature three separate viability objectives (environmental, economic and social). For the

purposes of this multi-part deliverable, only operational aspects of environmental viability are considered.

A wider approach to environmental viability takes other factors into account including the use of raw

materials and avoidance of hazardous substances in the construction of infrastructure or ICT equipment-

these factors are not considered.

New technologies and infrastructure strategies are expected to enable operators to decrease the energy consumption, for

a given level of service, of their existing and future infrastructures thus decreasing their costs. This requires a common

understanding among market participants that only standards can produce.

This multi-part deliverable specifies the general engineering of various broadband infrastructures to enable the most

effective energy management (and management of other resources) and the appropriate measures for EoL treatment of

ICT equipment. Certain of the standards may specify requirements for interoperability.

The present document has been developed against the following background:

• Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) such as the ICT equipment used within broadband

deployment systems and mobile networks has joined computers, televisions, refrigerators and mobile

telephones phones as one the fastest growing waste streams in the European Union (EU) and is expected to

grow to more than 12 million tonnes by 2020.

• Further to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the European Commission (EC) has issued, and will issue, Directives and

Regulations in order to improve e-waste processing of whole industry sectors and producers and users of ICT

equipment are obliged to monitor waste processing of that equipment.

Independent of national regulation and legislation concerning WEEE, the present document specifies requirements for

processes in relation to management of EoL for ICT equipment used within infrastructures of broadband deployment.

The objective of the present document is to specify requirements and recommendations for the ICT sector to contribute

actively to the WEEE collection objectives as defined in the WEEE Directive.
