[Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 26, 2019] At the Global ICT Energy Efficiency Summit held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Huawei explored energy evolution trends, strategies, and solutions in the 5G era with industry elites from GSMA, ITU, Orange, China Mobile, and ABI Research under the theme of “Powering 5G Together.” At the summit, Huawei released the 5G Energy Target Network White Paper and 5G-oriented Data Center Facility White Paper as well as the new-generation 5G eMIMO Power and 5G data center facility solutions, aiming to provide optimal energy solutions for network evolution and data centers.
With the advent of the 5G era, mobile Internet and cloud computing services are booming. Sites are facing difficult network evolution and increasing OPEX as a result of surging power consumption. In addition, data centers are witnessing explosive growth in computing power and energy consumption. How to reduce energy consumption using new technologies and process more information with less energy is a major concern of the industry.
“Huawei actively works with global operators and industry organizations to promote energy conservation and emission reduction in the telecom industry,” said Zhou Taoyuan, President of Huawei Network Energy Product Line, “Through technological innovation, Huawei continuously improves energy efficiency and introduces clean energy to telecom sites and data centers. This promotes the replacement of fossil energy by clean energy and reduces energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions, which is conducive to achieving global sustainable development goals.”
Released the 5G Energy Target Network White Paper and 5G-oriented Data Center Facility White Paper to Boost Industry Development
At the summit, Huawei released the 5G Energy Target Network White Paper and 5G-oriented Data Center Facility White Paper based on its insights into and surveys of global operators’ pain points in network evolution as well as suggestions from operators in various regions. The white papers provide reference for the design and deployment of 5G energy and facilities. Huawei looks forward to more extensive discussions and cooperation with the industry based on these white papers to foster the development of the industry.
- 5G Energy Target Network White Paper: points out that telecom energy should be designed for the 5G telecom energy target network, and the 5G power supply system should be deployed to be simple, intelligent and green. 5G telecom energy deployment should be transformed from the independent design of each subsystem and focus on component energy efficiency in the traditional approach to the integrated design of the entire site system and focus on site and network energy efficiency. In addition, more innovative technologies need to be leveraged to accelerate the large-scale application of green energy, enrich services in the 5G era, simplify 5G network deployment, and enable green and efficient operations.
- 5G-oriented Data Center Facility White Paper: proposes that full-stack simplification and all intelligence are inevitable trends for deploying data center facilities to bear operators’ basic networks and service systems and for intelligent and digital industries in the 5G era. Full-stack simplification enables a highly integrated multi-power and lightweight rack-mounted air conditioning system, allowing the access, transmission, switching, core network user plane, and computing services to be deployed together. All intelligence achieves intelligent O&M and management throughout the data center life cycle. The data lake and AI analysis capabilities are used to build an intelligent data and service platform for new 5G services.
Launched the New-Generation 5G eMIMO Power and 5G Data Center Facility Solutions to Assist Carriers in Future Evolution
- 5G eMIMO Power solution: Telecom energy is considered and designed as a crucial part of the end-to-end 5G solution. The 5G eMIMO Power solution uses technologies such as AI, big data, and digitalization and complies with the three concepts of “simple, intelligent and green.” One set of power supply equipment supports 36 kW ultra-large capacity and multiple input and output modes. The equipment caters to 5G telecom network evolution and can house IT devices, video devices, etc. It also supports solar energy and multiple mains inputs, meeting diversified power supply requirements. The 5G eMIMO Power solution enables operators to construct and operate 5G networks in a faster, more cost-effective, and simpler manner.
- 5G data center facility solutions: Huawei modular and one-stop 5G edge data center solutions boast high integration, flexibility, energy efficiency, and connectivity. The solutions support the deployment of massive number of 5G data centers in batches, allowing customers to roll out services on demand and monetize 5G services.
Since the 1st Global ICT Energy Efficiency Summit was held in 2015, the summit has been held in Melbourne, Dubai, Madrid, and Turin. As a leader in the network energy industry, Huawei will continue to lead energy digitalization and help customers reduce OPEX and carbon emissions for a green and intelligent world.
