SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.(“Huawei”), a leader in providing next generation telecommunicationsnetwork solutions for operators around the world, has announced that it haslaunched a new solution that can reduce base station power consumption byup to 60%. The Green Sites Solution, uses optimized hardware design, aninnovative power amplifier and power consumption management to helpoperators realize a high level of power saving.

Reducing the power consumption of base stations has emerged as one of thekey concerns of telecom operators around the globe. Huawei’s Green SitesSolution adopts leading power amplifier technologies, including DPD andA-Doherty, that boost the power efficiency of base stations by 45% reducingthe overall power consumption of the facilities. It also uses a distributedarchitecture that allows 20W base stations to have the same outputfrequency coverage as traditional 40W base stations and high-efficiencypower amplifier technologies that make convection cooling, direct cooling,and intelligent cooling technology in a base station possible. This reducesthe need for air-conditioners that cause noise pollution and helps toreduce a base station’s electricity consumption to less than 500W. Huawei’sGreen Sites Solution is also able to be integrated with environmentalfriendly energy sources such as wind, solar power, and methane.

“Huawei has always been committed to looking after the environment,”commented Mr. Yu Chengdong, president of Huawei’s Wireless Product Line.“As one of the leading telecom equipment and solutions providers, we areputting this goal into practice by designing environmental friendlyproducts.”
