50 Energy Opex Saving Strategies for Telecom Operators - Green Telecom

Energy is one of the largest opex head for Telecom Operators. Telecom Operators are looking for energy opex savings strategies both for increasing profitability and going Green. Equipment Vendors are looking at opex saving strategies from piece meal perspective limited by breadth of their solutions portfolio. Below is a representative list of some of the Opex Saving Strategies and Possibilities for Telecom Operators

Planning1. Reduce Number of BTS ( Decrease Cell Sites , Increase subscribers per site)
2. Reduce Energy Consumption per Site
3. More spectrum .Less BTS
4. Electricity Low Tariff Usage
5. Claim – Carbon Credits

6. Passive Infrastructure Sharing - Tower Sharing, Power Sharing, Genset Sharing
7. Active Sharing - RAN Sharing, RNC Physically Shared but logically separated
8. Backhaul Sharing – Infra Sharing
9. Agreement to Switch one network off in low load scenario

Shelters10. Replacing Shelters with Cabinets
11. Green Shelters – PUF Panels

Cooling12. Replacing Air Con with Free Cooling, HEX , TEC
13. Intelligent Remote Air Con Control (Temperature, Humidity, Clock Time)
14. No AirCon Requirement on Base Station
15. Compressor Less Air Cooling – AirCon
16. Precision Air Con (PAC)
17. HFC Free Cooling System
18. Inverter based Air Con
19. Passive Cooling Method- Phase Change Material for Storing Thermal Energy

Rectifiers20. High Efficiency Rectifier

A Business Fiction book - "Who is that lady?"

The book is about an idea that is converted into a billion dollar business, about a belief that an idea can be implemented and about formulating right strategy for converting an idea into a business. The plot harmoniously weaves around complex business fundamentals, required to set up, run and make a business successful, presented in lucid, easy to understand style. The novel is about implementation, about challenges that can be overcome, about success, about friendship, about passion, and about fun above all! All in all a hilarious and inspiring story on entrepreneurship and idea possibilities!

The book has got good and encouraging reviews from readers so far.

Dr. T. R. Madanmohan ( Ex Associate Professor IIM Bangalore ) says, “Reading ‘Who is that lady?’ brought vividly the moments of celebration and anguish of "identification of business opportunity", validation and construction of business model and implementation. A wonderful, written as a novel, that should be read by all current and future business leaders. Wish the book was available around 2005 for my class of Managing Technology led business at IIM Bangalore. I am sure the class would have devoured and gained much more from the book.” 

Sathish Sheshadri ( Management Consultant at IBM) says, “India is renowned for using stories to convey great life lessons. Who is that Lady could well become such a legendary story on the topic of innovation and entrepreneurship. Everyone from students to CEOs will find a lot to reflect on, from the pearls of wisdom that the authors have shared through the protagonist, Pratik.”

Major Pooja Gupta says, “The book makes you think... if there is anything in this world which is impossible.”

Subir Dhar (Principal Consultant at Infosys) says, “This book will inspire India’s restless youth to take up entrepreneurship.”

Neerav Nimesh (Entrepreneur) says, “An entertaining book, which is not only a good novel but also a very good book on management. The author has been able to explain the fundamentals of every aspect of business whether marketing, planning, strategy, organizational structure, H.R., lines of communication, team work, goal setting etc and has done so without appearing to dispense "gyan".
