Ericsson Energy Efficiency

With a great part of energy consumption originating from the radio access network (RAN), it is a crucial to focus for energy performance improvements.


Our intelligent RAN energy-saving software features help operators to significantly reduce energy consumption, with up to 15%. This is achieved by advanced measurements that predicts traffic patterns, traffic load and end-users need, down to cell level, and based on this data it is possible to dynamically turn off and on base band & radio to achieve a lowest possible energy consumption at best possible network performance. Examples of Software features: LESS (Low Energy Scheduler Solution), MIMO sleep mode, Micro sleep Tx, and Cell sleep mode.

Key benefits

  • Reach 15% savings through Predictive and intelligent software features
  • Systematic long-term development to reduce energy consumption
  • Energy consumption reduction with kept network performance
