Singapore’s greenest radio cell deployed in 5G network: Singtel 

The Ericsson AIR 3268 will save up to almost 20% more energy.

Singtel fielded the Lion City’s greenest radio cell, Ericsson AIR 3268, to the country’s 5G network, after forging a partnership with Swedish telecommunications firm, Ericsson.

The cell is seen to conserve up to 18% more energy and weighs over 40% less than older generations of 5G radios.

“At just 12 kilograms, its proportions simplify upgrades and make new site acquisitions and installations easy on towers, rooftops, poles and walls – even in challenging locations,” said Singtel.

It makes a 5G site 76% lighter than a 4G site that needs multiple radios whilst providing the same network capacity.

The deployment of eco-friendly radio cells is part of the government’s push for sustainability and decarbonisation measures. More of these cells will be put up all over the country to boost nationwide 5G coverage.
