Huawei’s R&D innovation produces 5G Active Antenna Units (AAUs) which deliver 50x larger cell capacity without increasing the energy consumption of existing 4G Remote Radio Units (RRUs). Ray also outlined how implementing AI drives savings at the network level including:

  • Outline of the drivers for energy-efficient mobile networks
  • Discuss how a range of technologies are reducing energy consumption within the RAN
  • Explain how AI will play a key role in further reductions in energy consumption
