- ZTE’s energy solutions for communications infrastructure
- What 5G will mean for cell site energy in Africa? Dismantling 2G, consolidating 3G and 4G on shared antennas, and an increased power requirement for 5G
- Why this makes the modularity and scalability of power systems even more critical
- The reducing cost, and increasing deployment, of Lithium-ion batteries
- ZTE’s experiences building, and powering, the network in Ethiopia, and their views on the liberalisation of the market
In this interview, ZTE explain Africa’s evolving network energy requirements, from the 3G/4G present to the 5G future. With power requirements set to increase exponentially, the modularity and scalability of power systems becomes even more critical, and maintaining control of TCO will require increasing deployment of Network Energy Management systems based on big data analysis….
