Ericsson says he new solution enables service providers to reduce OPEX and CO2 emissions from their networks while maximizing site availability.
Using what Ericsson describes as “cutting-edge technology”, Energy Infrastructure Operations creates energy efficiencies on the radio network, where most savings can be achieved.
According to Ericsson, the new solution not only addresses site-related energy savings, but also operational efficiencies to enable less site visits to be performed, ultimately resulting in CO2 emission reduction across multiple layers:
- 15% decrease in energy-related OPEX
- 15% reduction in site visits related to passive infrastructure
- 30% reduction of energy related outages
Ericcson says the Energy Infrastructure Operations solution has been trialled with customers in Europe Asia, Europe Middle East and Latin America and is currently live in Telenor Myanmar’s network.
Ruza Sabanovic, CTO, Telenor Group, says: “Telenor Myanmar has worked systematically over the past years to reduce energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. In the last two years, our per-site energy consumption has been reduced by 19 percent.
“We’ve taken another positive step by going live with Ericsson’s energy management solution on the Telenor Myanmar network. This enables us to use machine learning and data analytics to optimize energy use and maximize site availability, helping us to continue working towards our climate ambitions.”
“We see a strong focus from our customers on reducing energy consumption as they look to make their operations more efficient and improve their carbon footprint,” said Peter Laurin, SVP and Head of Business Area Managed Services, Ericsson
“Our Energy Infrastructure Operations offering is an innovative solution with different efficiency scenarios to address different needs. Its AI-based data-driven approach will enable service providers to achieve OPEX and CAPEX savings as well as reductions in CO2 emissions.”
