    French mobile telephone infrastructure manufacturer Alcatel-Lucent today unveiled technology that shrinks a cell tower to a box the size of a Rubik’s cube, potentially changing the structure of the cellular network, reducing greenhouse emissions and bringing mobile broadband into new areas.

    Called lightRadio, the technology was displayed in London supported by partners Freescale and HP.

    According to Wim Sweldens, president of wireless activities for Alcatel-Lucent, by reducing the technology from something the size of a filing cabinet, networks would reduce the total cost of ownership by half, as well as halving the global CO2 emissions from the mobile industry currently equivalent of 15 million cars a year.
