Ericsson partners with Vertiv and NorthStar to form the Ericsson Energy Alliance

March 26, 2018

Ericsson has partnered with Vertiv and NorthStar to form the Ericsson Energy Alliance, a site solution partnership to drive cost-effective and sustainable service provider network evolution towards 5G, within the Ericsson Radio Site System.

The alliance brings Vertiv’s global expertise in power, thermal and infrastructure site management solutions, and NorthStar’s battery and energy storage solutions, into the Ericsson Radio Site System to establish a competitive ecosystem and management interface and increase the market share of the enclosure and power parts of the system portfolio.

Building on the combined global supply and service delivery footprints, speed and flexibility, unique product competence, local sales support, and easy access to engineering strengths of the partners, the alliance increases competitiveness and cost efficiency through the broadened portfolio and more access to new technology.

The sustainability benefits include:

• equipment to reduce energy consumption

• the use of renewable and hybrid energy resources

• efficient operations to reduce carbon footprint

• remote energy management and hybrid site solutions, including solar cell panels

Energy and climate systems are also optimized to use the minimum required energy to provide an electronic trusted environment for Ericsson Radio System products, delivering environmental as well as cost-efficiency benefits for service providers. Future joint-development of products is being considered. More companies are also expected to join the alliance this year.

Giordano Albertazzi, president for Vertiv in Europe, Middle East, and Africa said, “This Alliance reflects our relentless focus on research and development as a key to addressing the numerous challenges of this fast-paced digital world. The partnership with Ericsson allows our companies to join forces and achieve long-term, profitable growth by becoming even more incisive and competitive in the market.”

Hans Lidén, chief executive officer, NorthStar said, “We are excited to join Ericsson in this energy alliance after 15 years of successful collaboration. The energy alliance will allow us to more effectively address and satisfy regional site needs through joint efforts with Ericsson and Vertiv. I’m convinced that we will be able to utilize our combined strengths to increase competitiveness for the benefit of our customers and our three companies.”

Commenting on the partnership Nishant Batra, head of product area network infrastructure, Ericsson said, “Network evolution begins at the site. This is a true complementary partnership. The alliance members are combining the best of their radio site technology, skills, and abilities to bring a broadened, more flexible, and competitive portfolio to the table to help service providers in their 5G evolution through the Ericsson Radio System. We continue to onboard suppliers for additional product categories with sharp focus on sustainable energy. Service providers want and demand seamless evolution. The Ericsson Energy Alliance helps to provide that.”
