The ‘Presidential Committee on Green Growth’ has announced a ‘National Strategy for Green IT’. The strategy included 9 core initiatives.
The development pipeline includes plans to build a u-Sensor based smart traffic signalling system and to provide an intelligent integrated traffic information service to minimise vehicle congestion and idling. By 2013, a real-time integrated logistics management system for docks and harbours, airports, and railways will be completed. User friendly energy management services that allows energy users to check their usage levels through IPTV will also be made possible by building an intelligent energy network infrastructure based on a high speed communication network and home network.
Foundations for building an advanced UBcN (Ultra Broadband convergence network) which is 10 times faster than the existing BcN, and its commercial services will be delivered by 2013. UBcN will bring energy efficiency through fixed-mobile convergence. WiBro, sensor networks and other mobile infrastructure is also planned to be upgraded and policies to support the development of a base station and relay station-based public sensor network infrastructure will also be developed. There are also plans to make broadcasting and telecommunications infrastructure green by building platforms based on open software and securing credible cloud computing services.
The private sector led by KT, SK Telecom, Samsung Electronics, LG CNS and other IT companies are actively working on establishing green IT strategies.
