Ericsson launches energy-efficient 5G sites in China

Swedish telecoms giant Ericsson has announced a new collaboration with China Mobile to jointly launch two energy-efficient 5G sites in China.

Ericsson said the two sites in Jiangsu and Guangdong will help "accelerate its energy conservation and carbon emission reduction efforts".

The first site in collaboration with China Mobile Jiangsu will see the development of a 5G smart site on 700MHz band that does not produce carbon dioxide while the duo will also work together in Guangdong to launch an energy-efficient site on the 2.6GHz band.

For this collaboration, China Mobile has implemented Ericsson’s power system, which enables hybrid energy management. Ericsson claims it optimises use of energy from solar, grid and battery to achieve "the most energy-efficient operation" integrated with remote management option via the Ericsson Network Manager.

Liming Tang, head of RAN HW solutions for North East Asia at Ericsson, said: “Ericsson is committed to helping customers build and manage high-quality networks with advanced connectivity technologies, products, and solutions. We pursue improved energy usage and management through technological development, and we are pleased to further contribute to a more energy-efficient 5G network with China Mobile.
