Energy Infrastructure Operations
Using AI and data analytics, Energy Infrastructure Operations creates energy efficiencies on the radio network. It 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. Integrated into the Ericsson Operations Engine – the company’s AI-based, data-driven approach to managed services – the new solution enables service providers to reduce OPEX and CO2 emissions from their networks while maximizing site availability.
Service providers are estimated to be spending around 25 billion USD a year to power their networks and site infrastructure is consuming a high proportion of that budget. For many service providers, energy consumption has historically been one of the highest operating costs, where it constitutes between 20 – 40% of network operations OPEX.
A key issue in solving the energy puzzle in network sites is to have an end-to-end view on passive site infrastructure as well as active (radio) infrastructure. Energy optimization of passive infrastructure is often missed out as?energy spent on these equipment (batteries, climate control units, diesel generators etc.) are rather?hard to measure and control.??
Making passive infrastructure manageable
Our solution to this challenge is to develop both site and operation solutions enabling intelligent site measurements and control.?Energy Infrastructure Operations is our multivendor operation solution, which focuses the energy spent on the site and operational efficiencies of managing energy assets.
Energy Infrastructure Operations is an AI powered data driven operations solution, which focuses on managing energy assets efficiently through intelligent site measurements and control.
To enhance measurement and control in network sites, we deploy a set of sensors and site controllers to be able to make passive equipment visible, measurable and controllable. Data from these site controllers are aggregated and routed to our analytics engine, where we apply a number of automated efficiency scenarios, enabling realization of savings in real time. Solution also initiates Trouble Tickets and actionable Work Orders and recommends actions for improving energy efficiency of sites, site visit optimization, network performance and Total Cost of Ownership.
