Singtel Partners Ericsson for Mobile Network Energy Savings

Singtel has partnered with Ericsson for its nationwide deployment of Ericsson's Cell Sleep Mode function to conserve energy at its mobile base stations to achieve industry breakthrough in mobile network energy savings. This radio software functionality is integrated with Ericsson's Cognitive Software application, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to predict traffic patterns for each radio cell transmitter. This approach leads to optimized cell sleep configurations, resulting in an average energy savings of up to 8% annually.

Greater Energy Savings using AI/ML

Traditionally, cell transmitters were only put on sleep mode at night when network usage was typically lower. However, Ericsson's Cell Sleep Mode function enables Singtel to reduce electricity consumption at mobile base stations by putting cells to sleep during periods of low traffic.

Paired with Cognitive Software, Singtel can collect intelligence from large volumes of data, including usage and mobility patterns, around the clock. This allows Singtel to make highly efficient, fast, and automated decisions on when to activate sleep mode for radio cell transmitters, resulting in significant energy savings.

Singtel's other Energy Efficient Practices

Singtel says it has adopted several energy-saving strategies over the years, such as installing energy-efficient radios and optimizing network algorithms at its mobile base stations in Singapore. Single has also deployed Singapore's most energy-efficient 5G radio cell, which can save up to 18% more energy compared to previous generations of 5G radios.
