With most mobile network operators committing to rapid carbon emissions cuts within this decade and soaring energy costs, the reduction of network energy consumption is becoming increasingly critical.
GSMA estimates that RAN accounts for 73% of total consumption in mobile networks. Driving more power efficiency in the RAN is therefore crucial to make wireless networks more sustainable. It is also a way to limit the exposure to unpredictable swings in power costs – and potentially availability.
Operators’ networks already have all the data needed to achieve maximum RAN energy savings efficiently and effectively while assuring a controlled impact on subscribers’ experience.
With the dynamic nature of the RAN and subscribers’ ever-changing needs, automation and location intelligence technology are proven and easy-to-deploy solutions to solve these new energy challenges.
Monica Paolini, Principal at Senza Fili and Frank Mamani, Product Line Manager and Optimization Expert for VIAVI Solutions discuss how to make these efficient and maximum RAN energy savings a reality.
