Unlike physical objects, software sees no natural wear and tear such as oxidation or physical and thermal stress. Once a software is correctly and functionally implemented into a system, it could run forever, at least in theory. In practice, recent times have seen a growing number of empirical examples, where a malfunctioning software, high perform...

This paper presents important methodical aspects in conjunction with the ongoing development of a novel multi-level-model in support of lifecycle environmental assessments of telecommunication networks. The new approach is, to some extent, emulating the OSI-layer model (Open Systems Interconnection), starting at the bottom with the main physical co...
Chapter
The fast-growing sector of smart city applications resulting from the ongoing digitalization has a huge impact on our society. They use innovative technologies to improve for example mobility, optimize shopping or offer intelligent travel guide assistance. However, these applications have not only the potential to benefit our daily life with precis...

... The perception of functional value generally declines when a product is broken and can no longer perform its main function or when it suffers a loss in its original performance (Van Nes & Cramer, 2006). In addition, the wide development of smart products leads to a specific case of replacement related to software issues that hinder their functional performance (Poppe et al., 2021;Zallio & Berry, 2017). ...
... This growth may not compromise clean air, clean water and a sustainable energy and material usage, but rather facilitate these prerequisites for flora and fauna. Overall, global primary energy consumption rises due to the Internet [1] and Internet's own electrical energy consumption is also rising [2][3][4]. Plausibly the global primary energy and electricity consumption would rise even faster without the handprint of certain ICT solutions. The Internet Sector is one of few which might off-set its own electrical energy consumption and GHG supply, i.e., its handprint [5] is larger than its footprint. ...
