Traditional air-cooling systems are noisy and need ongoing maintenance. Nokia announced the start of trials with Japanese mobile operator KDDI, using Nokia’s Liquid Cooling AirScale Baseband solution. The trial will show how KDDI can reduce its baseband cooling system energy consumption by more than 70 percent compared to existing solutions. Efficiencies can be further enhanced by the introduction of a heat reuse option for a potential reduction of 80 percent in CO2 emissions.
KDDI will also trial the Nokia AVA solution which applies artificial intelligence to minimize energy consumption across the network. Liquid-cooled AirScale Baseband and AVA for energy efficiency solutions are another milestone in Nokia’s commitment to sustainability and combatting climate change.
Nokia committed to cut emissions by 50 percent between 2019 and 2030 as part of its updated science-based climate change targets, in line with a 1.5°C warming scenario. This covers emissions across its own operations and portfolio, logistics, and electronics manufacturing. Nokia intends to continue its efforts to research and develop solutions that reduce CO2 emissions beyond this trial.
