The energy costs associated with running the world’s mobile networks are set to exceed $25bn annually due to the ongoing energy crisis and inflation. The increased and volatile energy prices have resulted in short-term large impacts in certain areas, like Europe. According to GSMA Intelligence, energy consumption accounted for between 20% and 40% of Operators’ OPEX, and this figure is yet to increase in the next few years.
According to studies on the Energy Use of more than 100 telecom operators, the mobile Radio Access Network (RAN) uses the bulk of energy consumed (at least 73%), since it provides coverage across thousands of square kilometers, transforming energy into radio waves, and receiving and processing incoming signals. The rest of the consumption comprises Core (13%) and Operations (5%). While the Data Centers appear to be shy at 9%, that is mainly due to the few that are owned directly by the Carrier.
The Challenge: Protecting your investment!
As the number of small cells deployed grows, bigger bandwidth and greater flexibility are required. Also, as networks evolve from 4G to 5G, increased complexity, network densification, and intelligence at the edge are required, resulting in increased CapEX and OpEX. The need to optimize RAN energy efficiency is the only way to keep energy consumption under control while delivering an excellent user experience. Therefore, an economic and practical method must be proposed and tested.
InMobiles, being a global leader in the digitization of Telcos and a pioneer of “Smart Solutions” has integrated its latest technologies to help Mobile Operators modernize their existing networks and maximize traffic performance through tools and capabilities, such as AI and machine learning (ML). Through its Energy Optimization Solution (EOS), InMobiles is able to protect Mobile Operators’ investments and effectively reduce their energy bills by over 35%.
Committing to a Greener Telecom
Mobile Operators cannot continue with a business-as-usual approach. Committing to a greener telecom requires wider network changes and modernization.
EOS utilizes the latest advances in technology to enable energy-saving functionalities. It has AI capabilities that can lead to reduced energy usage and a lower carbon footprint. This sustainable energy-saving application can adjust network capacity so that it matches demand, and provides the best user experience with the lowest energy use possible.
InMobiles’ Energy Optimization Solution finds the right balance of network performance and energy performance/ efficiency. EOS provides effective monitoring control and management that improves the efficiency of the power system and prolongs its lifecycle:
The Three Dimensions Analytics (3DA)
InMobiles EOS utilizes a Three Dimensions Analytics (3DA) approach to analyze the network from three different perspectives while implementing awareness at cell, sector, and cluster levels to ensure QoS is always maintained.
- Prolong rectiﬁer lifespan.
- Applicable for 2G,3G,4G,&5G network.
- Reducing the Tx power of the non-BCCH time-slots. Predicts network trafﬁc demand with very high accuracy.
- In a multi-band network, enable the dynamic cell shutdown based on location and peak time.
- Improved efficiency of the power system and prolongs its service time
