Reducing CO2 emissions

A large amount of energy is needed to power the mobile network infrastructure. This makes energy efficiency an

environmental as well as a business priority. There are several initiatives to increase energy efficiency in mobile
networks by GSMA, EUREKA (Eureka/SooGREEN)
and other organisations. In Sweden, Tele2 is launching an extensive project to make its 4G network even more
energy efficient to contribute to the highly set climate goals for 2020 that Sweden and the UN have established (Tele2 Press Release).
Mobile networks are experiencing an exponential growth of traffic volumes, associated with the
emergence of new services. Telecom manufacturers and operators should design mobile networks that are able
to absorb this drastic increase of traffic while mastering their energy consumption.
Maven next-generation digital DAS is designed to support the expansion of existing mobile networks including
future technologies such as virtual RAN and 5G. At the same time, Maven digital DAS’ power consumption is
reduced to less than half the power consumption of current solutions, reducing operating costs, environmental
footprint and eliminating cooling fans. For a medium size DAS system this means an annual cost saving of
approximately 20kEUR. The annual energy saving is equivalent to the combustion of 70 tons of coal generating
124 tons of CO2 emissions.

Smart Dubai 2020

During January, Maven Wireless met a delegation from the “Smart Dubai 2020” initiative when they came to Stockholm to discuss solutions for a smarter and happier city. There were many interesting ideas and discussions about how to get all citizens connected, with different applications and technologies to simplify everyday life.
The Maven Wireless DAS is a smart solution that provides future proof indoor coverage supporting the highest speeds of mobile data. Its unrivalled energy efficiency makes the solution sustainable, which means the environment is also kept happy.
