Huawei chooses Green Development, focuses on Energy-efficient ICT Infrastructure

Philip Song

Huawei’s Carrier BG Chief Marketing Officer, Philip Song, launched a new suite of green development solution during Win-Win·Huawei Innovation Week which was held between July 18 to July 21 in Shenzhen, China.

Detailing out the objectives, Philip said, “Green development, building energy-efficient ICT infrastructure is aimed at helping operators systematically improve network energy efficiency. As ICT infrastructure continues to evolve from 5G and F5G to 5.5G and F5.5G, green networks, evaluated against the network carbon intensity (NCIe) index, will become a critical part of future target networks. We have launched this to help operators systematically build green networks which will address traffic growth and carbon emission reduction simultaneously.”

The three level Innovation

According to Song, technological innovation is required at three levels to help customers achieve green development goals:

1) At the site and equipment level, more integrated designs and new materials should be used to move sites fully outdoors, and increase equipment energy efficiency and the efficiency of using renewable energy.

2) In cross-site coordination and networking, a simplified network architecture and improved forwarding efficiency are required to maximize energy efficiency and make networks all-optical, simplified, and intelligent.

3) To achieve green O&M, new O&M and energy-saving policies should be more easily developed and delivered, and energy efficiency indicators and baselines should be made more visible, manageable, and optimizable.

He concluded with a vision that Huawei is committed to working with operators to improve the energy efficiency of ICT infrastructure and create value using green ICT technologies. He also announced the opening of Evergreen Land engagement room, where Huawei would meet with global operators to undergo detailed discussion about green development and ways to build the most energy-efficient ICT infrastructure.
