Deployed energy-efficient solutions
The solutions from Ericsson’s portfolio with enhanced energy efficiency performance contributed to achieving 13 time less energy consumption per Gigabyte in a commercial network.
Energy efficiency is further boosted with network automation through Ericsson RAN Energy Efficiency software which automatically enables and disables the radio’s main power amplifier and other hardware blocks during fixed idle periods.
The new AIR 3268 has reduced energy consumption by 25 percent compared to AIR 3278 while offering the same level of downlink performance and a 12 percent improvement in the uplink data volume.
Reduced equipment weight is achieved, going down to 14 kilograms for AIR 3268 from 25 kilograms for AIR 3278.
The overall result is improved network energy efficiency, excellent customer experience, and cost-effectiveness.
