Nokia Siemens Networks in global collaboration with ACME Tele Power to provide energy efficient radio cell site solutions to telecoms operators

The companies will jointly explore new environmentally friendly initiatives that offer long-term operational expenditure benefits to operators

Nokia Siemens Networks and ACME Tele Power have agreed to jointly innovate to offer efficient operation, maintenance and energy management solutions to telecom operators. Leveraging ACME’s range of innovative passive infrastructure solutions, the companies will create customized solutions that improve networks’ environmental performance and positively impact customers’ competitiveness and profitability. The two companies will also establish a joint development lab in India to examine future opportunities, specifically around remote energy monitoring solutions.

The collaboration is aimed at supporting operators’ market penetration strategies and providing opportunities to further improve the energy efficiency of their networks. It is also the first tangible example of Nokia Siemens Networks Services’ proximity to innovation in India, enabling the company to grow its ability to deliver innovative solutions to customers around the world, especially in emerging markets. ACME’s expertise in cost and energy efficient passive infrastructure solutions complements Nokia Siemens Networks’ leadership in energy efficient radio networks.

“While we have made significant headway in the market with our energy efficiency solutions, we are continually exploring new ways to drive environmental sustainability and reduce costs for our customers. With ACME, we see an opportunity to break new ground with further innovative customer solutions. We are looking forward to working with them in emerging markets where the ability to provide cost effective rural connectivity is key,†said Ashish Chowdhary, head of Managed Services, Nokia Siemens Networks.

“We have a good understanding of emerging markets and have devised a wide range of products and solutions that effectively address the cost efficiency and energy management challenges that typically face operators in these markets. Together with Nokia Siemens Networks’ leadership in mobile networks, this collaboration is a win-win proposition for operators,†says Manoj Upadhyay, Managing Director, Acme Tele Power Ltd.

A significant proportion of total cell site costs can be directly linked to energy especially in emerging markets. Energy savings go straight to the bottom line, with a consequently positive impact on operator financials. ACME’s products reduce operation costs at cell sites by up to 40% through efficient energy management. They also contribute directly towards reducing green house gas emissions through optimizing diesel generator set operations. Customers can therefore contribute positively towards environmental conservation, besides deriving additional benefit from carbon credits. Acme products such as filterless ACs with free cooling and other patented innovations are also very low on maintenance and contribute towards overall reduction in operational expenditure (OPEX).

Nokia Siemens Networks believes that advanced communication technology can play a significant role in creating a sustainable future; in reducing adverse environmental impacts while maintaining opportunities for economic welfare and growth. This was the motive for the company-wide launch of an environmentally sustainable business approach last year which now plays a key role in all of the company’s network products and solutions. Nokia Siemens Networks is working on new models of energy management to help customers with OPEX reduction and business transformation.
