Ericsson Launches AI-powered Energy Infrastructure Operations
Ericsson launched AI-powered Energy Infrastructure Operations, a new energy management solution that leverages AI and advanced data analytics to optimize 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. It 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 up to 15 percent decrease in energy-related OPEX, up to 15 percent reduction in site visits related to passive infrastructure and up to 30 percent reduction of energy related outages. The Energy Infrastructure Operations solution has been trialed with customers in Europe, Asia, Middle East and Latin America and is currently live in Telenor Myanmar’s network.
“We see a strong focus from our customers on reducing energy consumption as they look to make their operations more efficient and improve their carbon footprint. Our Energy Infrastructure Operations offering is an innovative solution with different efficiency scenarios to address different needs. Its AI-based data-driven approach will enable service providers to achieve OPEX and CAPEX savings as well as reductions in CO2 emissions,” said Peter Laurin, SVP and Head of Business Area Managed Services.
