Breaking the Energy Curve
Sustainability is central to Ericsson’s purpose and vision. We are committed to creating positive impacts in society and reducing risks to Ericsson, our customers and society through our technology, our solutions and the expertise of our people.
Ericsson is helping service providers to "break the energy curve" by developing innovative approaches to first stabilize and then reduce total network energy use by 2025. It includes solutions that enable operator networks to use as little energy as possible while managing expected growth in data traffic; meeting the needs of both current and future network demands. In doing so, service providers can achieve something which historically has never happened before. They can finally break the network energy curve.
Addressing the network energy consumption and carbon emissions challenge requires an integrated approach that looks beyond individual product performance and addresses the whole network. That includes hardware and software, and considers both network modernization and the installed base.
Huawei Smart PUE Solution for Data Center
The rapid growth of local mobile Internet and cloud computing businesses and sustained growth of data center businesses has resulted in a large increase in energy consumption. To combat this, Huawei have launched a Smart PUE Solution for Data Center.
Compared with the traditional energy saving method by using efficient equipment plus manual operation, our solution applied new technologies based on AI, Big Data and Simulation in the operator's data center to optimize the parameters in air conditioners, and finally realize the automatic driven energy-saving operation, improving the system utilization and energy efficiency.
The solution will be implementation in large-scale data centers of mainstream carriers such as Telkom in South Africa, Safaricom in Kenya, and MTN in Nigeria.
