The telecom core network supports a vast array of functions within the network, from enabling mobile and web services; hosting cloud and colo offerings; and handling backend IT requirements. By supporting different IT functions, the core becomes prone to high heat densities due to an increase in computing requirements.
With 5G quickly evolving from myth to reality, operators must reevaluate their existing infrastructure to ensure that it is able to support high-density computing environment.
Many operators' core data centers are designed in a small footprint, making it prone to heat challenges.
The challenge, therefore, is optimizing the existing infrastructure for maximum reliability and efficiency, while ensuring flexibility and adaptability to future needs.
Consumers today are craving for more data and faster broadband speeds. Against this backdrop, operators are faced with the challenge of expanding their network footprint and bringing connectivity closer to customers to avoid customer churn.
With a wide network across scattered locations, operators must reduce latency for its customers and ensure data sovereignty.
Relying on the core data center may not be effective and cost-efficient for telco operators. Strengthening the network edges then must be considered.
Many telco operators are in the process of connecting consumers in far-flung, rural areas. But laying or connecting power cables in remote areas can be a challenge.
Managing and maintaining power in remote sites require the use of generators, and diesel deliveries can be hampered by poor weather conditions and other causes of delay.
Where resources are available, hybrid/alternative sources of energy are a viable.
Protecting vital broadband enclosures from the harsh environment is of critical importance to maintaining connectivity and reliability.
