Huawei and Orange Egypt to Build New Energy-Efficient Networks
During the COP27 Global Climate Conference, Huawei and Orange Egypt unveiled a new plan for a green network. The project's goal is to make networks use less energy by using more green power instead of traditional fossil fuel power.
Across several industries, new ICT technologies are being employed to help with energy conservation and pollution reduction. Telecom networking innovations, for example, can reduce carbon emissions and provide better experiences. By working with Orange Egypt, Huawei hopes to improve how eco-friendly energy is made and speed up the industry's move to green energy power supply and green electricity.
In 2019, Huawei and Orange Egypt started POC testing with a solution that saves power and gas. The results of this test exceeded expectations, reducing fuel usage by around 60% and diesel generation run times by approximately 70%. Huawei also offers several hybrid and lithium battery solutions, which it wants to use at hundreds of Orange Egypt locations to cut overall OPEX by about 40% and carbon emissions by about 45%.
Orange Egypt CTO Ayman Amiri said, “Orange Egypt will continue to promote a green ecological development strategy. With greater determination and strength, we will firmly implement the national strategy of actively combating climate change and work with Huawei to build a green and advanced network system with low-carbon development.”
The President of Huawei’s SingleRAN Product Line Jiang Xudong said, “Continuing our innovations in green equipment, green sites, and green networks will help operators increase network traffic while preventing an increase in energy consumption. It will also promote green 5G networks that are highly effective and developed with reduced carbon outputs.”
Tim Zhou, CEO of Huawei Egypt's Carrier Business, added, "As a reliable partner of operators in Egypt, Huawei will continue to provide innovative ICT solutions to help operators build efficient and green 5G networks, save energy, cut emissions, and build a green-based society."
Huawei and Orange Egypt have agreed to keep working together to create an innovative green energy system that will help them use more green energy for power supply and green electricity.
