Reducing mobile network power consumption with AI
Taoufik En Najjari, senior data scientist at Orange, explains: “For ten years, we have modernized our networks to make them more efficient and less energy-intensive. Our studies show that AI could reduce our power consumption by 15%.”
Orange research teams have created an algorithm using machine learning and big data technologies to scan the network and analyze technical data from base stations. It then proposes a reconfiguration of the devices detected as being the least efficient by copying the settings of the most optimized ones.
This algorithm, which is activated only twice a year for 15 minutes, has reduced Orange’s mobile network consumption in Poland by 4% in one year.
