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:
- ~15 percent decrease in energy-related OPEX
- ~15 percent reduction in site visits related to passive infrastructure
- ~30 percent reduction of energy related outages
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....
