Ericsson's Outdoor Enclosure 6150 HEX/AirCon has been used by Zain to install indoor mobile sites with shelters and air-conditioning, in Bahrain. The systems previously used by Zain consumed a lot of power and incurred high operational costs.
Ericsson's solution is an active cooling enclosure, a multi-purpose site cabinet that is designed for a range of radio network equipment. It provides a highly capable power system with a small footprint and enables cost-efficient expansion of mobile broadband networks.
The original systems that Zain Bahrain was using consumed high amounts of power, and operational costs. Ericsson's Enclosure is a multi-purpose site cabinet, which is designed to support a multitude of radio equipment, providing a highly capable power system and battery back-up; all in a streamlined design and minimized footprint to support the cost-efficient expansion of mobile broadband, as well as aligning with the national environmental plan which is part of Bahrain's Economic Vision 2030.
"At Ericsson we have strived to make the Enclosure 6150 to future-proof sites, and add flexibility for our customers, with rack space readily available for added baseband and PSU capacity," said Wojciech Bajda, Head of Ericsson Gulf Council Countries. "We are committed to lowering the overall total costs for our clients, as well as improving the speed of our units; and supporting the environmental campaigns that are occurring not only in Bahrain, but all over the world."
Lowering costs was a primary focus when Ericsson was developing the ERS 6150 Enclosure. This was achieved by ensuring there are smart requirement settings and design choices.
