Beijing, China – November 20, 2007

 

Nokia Siemens Networks launches Energy Efficiency solution to optimize energy use in mobile networks

 

Solution offers up to 70 percent savings in energy consumption of mobile base station sites

 

Most of the energy in a typical telecommunication network is consumed by the wireless network’s base station site. In response to this, Nokia Siemens Networks is focusing the first phase of its environmentally sustainable business solutions by today announcing offerings that dramatically improve the energy efficiency of its wireless networks, particularly the base stations and base station sites.

 

“The Energy Efficiency solution makes good green business sense,” said Ari Lehtoranta, head of the Radio Access business unit at Nokia Siemens Networks. “By bringing state-of-the art products and software together with our Services portfolio for operators, we can reduce adverse environmental impact while also generating considerable cost savings for our operator customers.”

 

The four main elements of the solution are: minimizing the number of base station sites; minimizing the need for air conditioning to cool the sites; using the latest base station technology; and, deploying software features that optimize the use of radio access for wireless communications. The energy consumption of a base station site can be reduced by up to 70 percent with Nokia Siemens Networks’ Energy Efficiency solution. This significant reduction in energy consumption creates a more environmentally friendly network operation and lower operating costs for Nokia Siemens Networks’ operator customers.

 

Building a network with a minimum number of base station sites increases energy efficiency, and intelligent network planning is critical for identifying optimum site locations. The Nokia Siemens Networks Energy Efficiency solution uses software features to increase coverage, thus minimizing the number of required base station sites. The solutions also take advantage of innovative Nokia Siemens Networks planning products to create new types of sites in previously non-viable locations. The Nokia Siemens Networks Flexi Base station, for example,  makes it possible for operators to locate complete base stations in places and positions where conventional base stations cannot be located due to limitations on size and weight.

 

Traditional base station sites are located indoors, where the typical temperature of 25ºC is maintained with high energy-consuming air conditioning. By increasing the ambient temperature to up to 40ºC, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 30 percent in existing base station equipment.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks utilizes a wide range of software features to improve base station energy efficiency by balancing consumption according to load. For example, because nighttime base-station traffic is much lower than during peak daytime hours, part of the base station can be shut down or its capacity can be set on power save mode at night. This is handled seamlessly by Nokia Siemens Networks’ intelligent network management solution, the NetAct Service Quality Manager. By leveraging the latest innovations in its software

solutions, Nokia Siemens Network is helping operators reduce costs by lowering the energy consumption of base stations during off-peak hours — without any impact on service levels for users of the network.

 

The telecommunications industry is striving to improve the energy efficiency of its latest-generation base stations. As the leader in wireless communication solutions that connect people and businesses in an environmentally sustainable way, Nokia Siemens Networks has made remarkable achievements in reducing energy consumption throughout its base station portfolio, achieving energy consumption levels of 800W and 500W respectively for typical GSM and WCDMA base stations. Going forward, the company has set even more ambitious targets: to further reduce the energy consumption of its GSM and WCDMA base stations to the 650W and 300W respectively by 2010.

Press Release

Beijing, China – November 20, 2007

 

Nokia Siemens Networks aims at net positive impact to the environment

 

Deployment of energy-efficient solutions in a large metropolitan city could equate to eliminating the emissions generated by 21,000 cars a year

 

Advanced wireless and wireline communication technology can play a significant role in creating a sustainable future - by reducing adverse environmental impacts while increasing opportunities for economic welfare and growth. The goal of Nokia Siemens Networks is to connect the world in a way that creates a net positive impact to the environment by maximizing the benefits telecommunications can bring to people and businesses, while minimizing the environmental footprint of its products and operations.

 

“We see a world where five billion people are connected by 2015 – and that is about two billion more than today,” said Simon Beresford-Wylie, chief executive officer of Nokia Siemens Networks, speaking about the company’s environmentally sustainable business approach in Beijing. “As the next two billion people gain access to the benefits of connectivity, the positive impact will be enormous. At the same time, we know that with this huge growth Nokia Siemens Networks must provide wireless and wireline connectivity that uses less and less energy, that has recyclable components and limited use of environmentally sensitive materials. From how we design our products to our work with suppliers, the management of our own operations and the services we offer for end-of-life recycling, Nokia Siemens Networks is committed to leading the telecommunications industry in environmental sustainability.”

 

The biggest environmental impact of the telecommunications industry comes from the energy consumption related to the use of its products. As the world’s leading communications solution provider, Nokia Siemens Networks has placed a strong emphasis on an environmentally sustainable business approach that consists of minimizing the environmental impact of its network solutions and services, with particular focus on energy consumption in the most power-hungry areas of the network. This approach provides substantial environmental benefits as well as reducing operating costs for network operators.

 

Improving the networks’ environmental performance and at the same time improving the network operators’ competitiveness, profitability and differentiation is achieved through low power consumption of products, intelligent network and site design, reduced size of products for more efficient transportation and installation, use of intelligent software, increased service life of the products and sophisticated take-back and recycling services.

 

The company applies product life-cycle thinking across its entire operations. Design for Environment (DfE) is a key first step that minimizes the environmental impact over the entire product life cycle, starting from materials management, and ending with take-back and recycling. Environmental requirements are extended by Nokia Siemens Networks to its suppliers, while the Environmental Management System (EMS) manages the environmental impact of Nokia Siemens Networks’ own activities. At the end of the product life cycle, take-

back, reuse and recycling services for equipment ensure recovery of material and secure safe disposal of substances.

 

Separately, Nokia Siemens Networks today launched the Energy Efficiency solution, which enables up to 70 percent savings in energy consumption of a base station site. In a network with approximately 5000 base stations, serving a large metropolitan area, the annual energy saving would be the equivalent of 73 000 tons of CO2 emissions, the emissions generated annually by 21,000 cars.

 

In remote areas, where advanced infrastructure such as a power grid is not readily available, renewable power sources such as solar panels can be used as a power source for the equipment instead of diesel generators. Nokia Siemens Networks is increasingly installing sites that are run by renewable energy.
