Decreases OPEX and CO2 emissions for communications service providers using AI and data analytics.
Ericsson has launched AI-powered Energy Infrastructure Operations, a new energy management solution that leverages artificial intelligence and advanced data analytics to optimize energy consumption across network infrastructure for communications service providers.
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.
Using cutting-edge technology, Energy Infrastructure Operations creates energy efficiencies on the radio network, where most savings can be achieved. The new solution 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.
Deployment of AI-powered Energy Infrastructure Operations can achieve:
The Energy Infrastructure Operations solution has been trialed with customers in Europe Asia, Europe Middle East and Latin America.
Today, energy consumption ranges from 20 to 40 percent of a site operation OPEX annually. According to Ericsson’s report, Supercharging customer experience with AI, OPEX reduction ranks among the top priorities for operators.
