Telecom equipment maker Nokia has unveiled an upgrade to its AVA Energy efficiency software, introducing new algorithms and power-saving features that will help communication service providers (CSPs) lower their networks’ electricity consumption.
The enhanced software enables SPs to reduce power consumption in data centers, network base stations, batteries, and air conditioning units in telco networks, Nokia said in a news statement.
The Nokia AVA Energy efficiency software can achieve up to 30 percent reduction in power usage, a 10 percent increase from the original software, according to customer testing. The software also offers automatic shutdown of idle equipment and remote power control module disconnection.
Nokia has completed or is currently undertaking over 50 energy-saving projects worldwide using its AVA Energy efficiency software, with CSPs spending between 3 percent and 20 percent of their total revenue on energy costs.
Analysts have highlighted the importance of efficient energy consumption for network operations, with CSPs requiring tools to meet increased customer demands while lowering energy consumption.
Hamdy Farid, Senior Vice President, Business Applications at Nokia, said that the company’s upgrade to Nokia AVA Energy efficiency demonstrates its commitment to cutting carbon emissions across its value chain.
