Huawei Launches Next Generation APM5950 Cabinet Solution, Helping Build Green Sites
PRESS RELEASE: At the World Mobile Broadband Forum (MBBF) 2020, Huawei launched the next-generation APM5950 cabinet solution to help operators improve network energy efficiency and achieve a zero carbon network. The solution aims to help operators build green sites and achieve a target green 5G network.
Ongoing cost pressure and net zero carbon emissions commitments in support of the 2015 Paris Agreement have made energy efficiency a strategic priority for many telecommunications operators around the world. European operators have been very active in reducing carbon emissions and have attached great importance to the introduction of clean energies. For example, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom and Orange have all set the goal of achieving zero net carbon emissions by 2040.
The industry has reached consensus on reducing carbon emissions and building a target green 5G network. To solve this problem, Huawei is launching the world’s leading GreenSite solution, comprising devices with low power consumption per bit, such as the innovative Massive MIMO MetaAAU and the ultra-wideband RRU. In addition, Huawei provides the next generation APM cabinet solution, which combines simplicity, low carbon emissions and intelligent collaboration.
Simplified: The APM uses high efficiency modules. One cabinet supports upgrading to nine frequency bands and can replace a traditional indoor equipment room, simplifying sites. A site with a cabinet: the sites are moved from the inside to the outside and the indoor air conditioners are removed. E2E energy efficiency of sites is improved from 60% to 90%, and energy consumption is reduced by 30%.
Low carbon: APM cabinet can smoothly introduce photovoltaic power. A maximum of 8 kW can be stacked on a cabinet, improving the proportion of green electricity. In addition, high cycle lithium batteries are used to replace diesel generators, thus reducing carbon emissions.
Intelligent collaboration: APM adjusts power and consumption efficiency in real time based on service loads. Power supply, emergency power and services are intelligently coordinated. Bits manage watts, achieving optimum overall efficiency for the entire site. The APM shares the same network management system with the base station.
With the large-scale global deployment of 5G, operators need to dramatically reduce network power consumption and build target green 5G networks while continuously improving network coverage and performance. APM can work with a series of green site solutions to simplify site deployment and improve site energy efficiency. Introduce green energy to reduce reliance on power grids and fossil fuels, and use smart technologies to implement smart collaboration of power, backup power, and grid services . Driven by these new technologies, the target network of green 5G will finally become a reality, laying solid foundations for the sustainable development of the digital economy.
The 12th Global Mobile Broadband Forum offers the opportunity for mobile and adjacent vertical ecosystems to reconnect, rebuild and reinvent a smart, fully connected world. Topics currently under discussion with global partners range from maximizing the potential of 5G, including industry use cases and applications, to advancing the mobile future.
