[Turin, Italy, October 9, 2018] Under the theme “Define telecom energy in 5G era”, Global ICT Energy Efficiency Summit was held in Turin, Italy. Huawei and the industry elites from Orange, Vodafone, Telefonica, Bell, China Mobile, ITU (International Telecommunication Union), ABI Research and etc. actively explore the 5G era telecom energy evolution trend, response strategy, standard and solutions. During the summit, Huawei launched the industry's first full-range 5G Power solution for global operators, providing the best energy solution for network evolution.
5G is now. Ultra-bandwidth, low-latency, high-reliability will generate more new value business in the next 5 years. At the same time, the number of global sites will increase dramatically, and the network power consumption will be doubled. As shown by Huawei’s research data, more than 70% of the sites will face the challenge of insufficiency capacity of power, battery, distribution, and more than 30% of the sites need grid modernization, which will definitely bring high CAPEX to carriers. As the power supply of the network, how can telecom energy achieve efficient and smooth evolution in 5G era to cut down the CAPEX and shorten the time to market? How to effectively manage the massive sites to reduce OPEX? How to improve energy reliability to meet high reliability and low latency of network business needs? These are the problems that carriers need to address squarely.
To this end, Huawei launched 5G Power series solutions to ensure that energy evolution is simpler, more reliable and more efficient in the 5G network process. Huawei believes that site synergy, network synergy, business synergy will be the direction for telecom energy in the future. All equipment will be synergic from end to end and help carriers improve energy efficiency and reduce OPEX. Huawei 5G Power Solution provides a scalable energy solution for new-built site and modernization site. With the design concept of ‘one site, one cabinet’ and ‘one band, one blade power’, it adopts innovative technology of peak shaving, linked voltage boosting and energy slicing, and fully considers the capacity expansion of cooling and battery backup. Facing the capacity expansion requirement in the future, Huawei 5G Solution enables carriers to avoid energy modernization and get 5G network overlaid quickly.
Tao Hongming, president of Huawei telecom energy business, remarked at the launch ceremony, “Based on deep understanding of pain points carriers are facing in the progress of network evolving, Huawei 5G Power Solution achieve end-to-end synergy from wireless network to telecom energy, which will further enable carriers to build networks quickly, reduce site energy consumption, and maximize their investment value. As a telecom energy supplier who is able to provide end-to-end ICT solutions, Huawei is willing to work with carriers and industry partners on continuous innovation and exploration, and jointly solve the energy challenges in 5G era.”
