The "0 Bit 0 Watt" solution is equipped with Huawei's native-green technologies that were designed to ensure premium experience and high energy efficiency at the levels from equipment to networks. In zero-load hours, with a switch-off depth level of 99%, the RF equipment consumes less than 10 watts of power during idle hours, and also automatically wakes up in seconds when needed to handle user service requests. This is the first solution to support these capabilities.

In other load conditions, it uses unique innovation in power amplifiers and antennas to achieve end-to-end high energy efficiency. It leverages intelligent technology to improve resource and power scheduling at the network and site levels. Therefore, networks are able to identify service types and scenarios and allocate and schedule network resources accordingly, ensuring that energy is appropriately distributed to ensure maximum energy utilization and efficiency. Meanwhile, the sites are able to sense load changes of network equipment and accordingly adjust between power feeding and storage towards maximum efficiency at the site level.

With these technologies and innovation, the "0 Bit 0 Watt" solution is highly energy efficient while delivering premium user experiences on 5G networks.

The "0 Bit 0 Watt" solution has been deployed on more than 30 networks worldwide. Results have shown it can reduce the average daily energy consumption by 9% to 38%, while improving user experience significantly.

Yu Yang, President of Huawei's SingleRAN Product Line, thanked GSMA for its recognition of Huawei's network energy-saving technology. New 5G applications have created a surge of network traffic. As a result, operators are looking to minimize energy consumption without compromising user experience. "Huawei's '0 Bit 0 Watt' solution combines material, component, and algorithm innovations to help operators deploy new 5G bands to improve experience without incurring extra energy consumption. It is an ideal choice for operators focusing on green growth," remarked Yu.

MWC Barcelona 2024 will be held from February 26 to February 29 in Barcelona, Spain. During the event, Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at stand 1H50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1.

With the 2024 commercial launch of 5.5G, Huawei is collaborating with operators and partners around the world to pursue exciting new innovation in networks, cloud, and intelligence. Together, we will drive 5G business and foster a thriving industry ecosystem, creating a new era for intelligent digital transformation. For more information, please visit:
