Hou Jinlong, President of Energy & Infrastructure Product Line: Operators all need to implement cost-efficient energy solutions that utilize renewable sources, while continuing to improve the efficiency of legacy infrastructure.
Lu Shaokun: Large and ultra-large data centers are becoming vital to the ICT industry, despite their higher energy & maintenance costs. Service providers face daunting challenges with saving energy and enhancing resource efficiency.
Besides improving network infrastructure, operators need to conserve energy, reduce operating costs, and minimize their carbon footprint; eco-friendly G3 (third-generation) sites provide an optimal solution.
Base stations are the key energy consumers on any mobile network; their monitoring & upgrade are essential if operators are to compete. With efficient monitoring & optimization, power consumption efficiency can be enhanced.
The cloud computing boom will require a large number of data center equipment rooms that feature optimal application fulfillment, deployment suitability, and TCO. Modular, distributed, and intelligent design will help.
Fuel cells use hydrogen, together with oxygen from the air, to produce electricity and heat. They can be a viable solution for onsite backup power, thanks to their reliability, cost-effectiveness and eco-friendliness.
