At the GTB Telecoms Innovation Summit & Awards held in London on May 23rd, Ericsson and SK Telecom were honored for their LTE Base Station Interference and Power Saving Technology (Green Scheduler with Lean Carrier).
The winning technology solution is a combination of 'Lean Carrier' which deactivates the base station control signal when there is no data transmission from the base station and 'Green Scheduler' which optimizes the radio resources according to the service characteristic used by the customer. As a result, both radio interference and base station power can be lowered at the same time, improving the communication speed for users, reducing the base station power, and forming a key technology for future evolution of eco-friendly networks.
Ericsson and SK Telecom have also been working together on the road to 5G. Recently, at a SK Wyverns baseball game in Incheon City Korea, Ericsson and SK Telecom brought a 5G connected car out to the stadium, showing connectivity speeds of up to 21.9 Gbps.
