Sustainability Manager , Three UK & I ; and Dean Boyle , CEO , EkkoSense , discuss how this was achieved and the benefits of EkkoSoft Critical technology .
hree UK , the mobile network with the largest 5G spectrum in the UK and recognised by Ookla as having the UK ’ s fastest 5G network , has deployed EkkoSense ’ s EkkoSoft Critical data centre optimisation software to secure a 12.5 % cooling energy reduction in just 10 weeks across its legacy sites .
Using the AI-enabled SaaS visualisation and analytics software ensures the rapid thermal optimisation of Three ’ s four UK legacy facilities . EkkoSoft Critical ’ s real-time operational visibility helps Three ’ s data centre operations team to identify exactly where specific cooling optimisation actions are needed . This has already resulted in initial cooling energy savings of 200 kW against a 196 kW projection , while also helping the Three data centre team to meet a corporate demand for 5 % total energy saving across its legacy sites .
Three is committed to building a better connected world to enable a more sustainable and inclusive future . This includes taking action on climate change and involves measuring carbon emissions and setting a carbon reduction strategy to reduce them . Critical data centre facilities are an important part of this initiative and Three is working consistently to optimise energy performance and reduce footprint .
