Leveraging artificial intelligence, Nokia AVA (analytics virtualisation and automation) for Energy SaaS monitors multi-vendor network traffic patterns to reduce connectivity resources during low usage periods.
Through monitoring and making adjustments in real time, the tool can save energy compared to non-AI systems that perform temporary network resource shutdowns based on fixed schedules, Nokia claims.
It also helps CSPs spot anomalies and benchmark the energy efficiency of passive infrastructure, such as batteries, power supplies, and air conditioning units that can account for up to 50% of overall energy consumption.
The software tool is aligned with Nokia’s commitment to cut emissions by 50% between 2019 and 2030 across its value chain.
Another SaaS offering is Nokia Home Device Management, a vendor agnostic, automated, secure and scalable device management platform capable of managing millions of home devices, like smart home thermostats and connected refrigerators.
Using the software, operators can remotely manage customer premise equipment (CPE), such as residential gateway, 5G fixed wireless access devices, Wi-Fi extenders and IP set-top boxes; and provides broadband connectivity to the smart home.
By standardising and automating the data recollection process, Nokia Home Device Management SaaS provides a single, integrated, standard base platform that supports home devices from any vendor.
This new SaaS service is also commercially available, just like Nokia’s Anomaly Detection SaaS.
“Nokia’s new SaaS offerings represent a significant change in the telecom market, as SaaS is the acceleration engine for the telecom industry to realise the full potential of 5G and beyond,” says Technology Business Research senior analyst Michael Soper.
“These latest Nokia SaaS services reflect the path Nokia is leading to help our customers accelerate their time to value; reduce complexity; and automate the services lifecycle through software consumed purely on demand,” concludes Nokia senior vice president business applications Hamdy Farid.
