Nokia Upgrades AVA for Network Power Reduction
Nokia has unveiled an upgraded version of its AVA Energy efficiency software, which incorporates advanced algorithms and energy-saving measures to enable communication service providers (CSPs) to reduce their network's electricity consumption even more.
The upgraded Nokia AVA Energy efficiency tool employs better Machine Learning algorithms, empowering CSPs to decrease power usage not only in network base stations, batteries, and air conditioning units but also in data centres.
Nokia AVA Energy efficiency software is a multi-vendor tool that can achieve a power reduction of up to 30%, which is approximately a 10% increase from the previous software, based on customer testing.
The upgraded tool's algorithms enable operators to automatically turn off inactive and unused equipment, and remote power control modules can completely disconnect hardware if desired.
Nokia has over 50 energy-saving projects with CSPs worldwide using its AVA Energy efficiency software as companies aim to decrease energy expenses and address sustainability issues in their operations.
According to a recently published report by Analysys Mason titled "Taming increased energy usage: the key role of AI-based energy efficiency solutions," CSPs typically allocate between 3% and 20% of their total revenue to energy costs.
Analysys Mason's Michela Venturelli stated that efficient energy consumption is crucial for network operations, and CSPs seek tools to help meet network customer demands while lowering energy consumption. The upgraded Nokia AVA Energy efficiency software contributes towards these ends.
Hamdy Farid, Nokia's Senior VP of Business Applications, said the upgraded software showcases Nokia's software capabilities and commitment to cutting carbon emissions across its value chain.
