Network modernization to reduce carbon footprint
Vodafone, United Kingdom
To modernize networks to be ready for 5G and IoT while retaining a top position for performance benchmarking.
Ericsson modernized 4,070 sites with single vendor Ericsson Radio System (ERS) solutions by using innovative carry-to-site solutions providing flexibility in deployment.
With more traffic, better throughput and energy efficient hardware consuming 30 percent less power, we retained a top position in performance benchmarking. A flexible portfolio removed the need for cranes, enabling faster deployment and CAPEX reduction.
Supporting sustainability goals
The highlighted sustainability goals are included in the project.
“We are continually enhancing our network to optimize performance and give our customers the best possible experience. We will continue to expand our 4G network and develop greater capabilities for our customers. We look forward to continuing to work with Ericsson in order to achieve our goals.”
