Chinese telecom equipment provider Huawei has launched a green base station solution which can help operators save over 60% in their energy consumption.
The GSM network solution adopts such advanced energy-saving technologies as distributive framework design, innovative power magnifiers and energy consumption management, and it can help save energy and reduce emission from the equipment, temperature-control energy saving and green energy utilization.
By adopting advanced power magnifier technologies like DPD and A-Doherty, the solution can increase the efficiency of power magnifiers by 45%, effectively reducing equipment's power consumption. Each base station can help operators save up to 5700 kilowatt hours of electricity each year, which is equivalent to reducing the carbon dioxide emissions of 1.7 tons of coal.
As the equipment power consumption of the distribution base station can be as low as 500W, it can rely on environmental-friendly energies like solar power, wind power or methane for power supply. At present, the solution uses solar power for power supply has been used in 12 countries in Africa.
Yu Chengdong, president of Huawei's Wireless Product Line, said at a press conference that Huawei deployed up to 100,000 GSM green base stations across the world in 2007 and helped save about 570 million kilowatt hours of electricity in the year, equaling a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions of burning 139,000 tons of coal. Yu said that the company's solution could help operators better achieve sustainable development.
