Huawei’s new-generation APM5950 cabinet won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022, a prestigious industrial design award, in the award ceremony for the Red Dot Design Award in Essen, Germany. The cabinet was chosen for its simplified design and innovative intelligent linkage between site and base station equipment. This award represents the industry’s recognition of APM5950’s industrial design and engineering capability and Huawei products’ industry-leading advantages.
Simplified design: The APM5950 cabinet is simplified in appearance, installation, and maintenance, which makes it a perfect combination of function and industrial designs. Its high-efficiency modules can increase the energy efficiency of sites to 90%. In addition, the cabinet adopts a modular and human engineering design, which enables flexible installation and fast and safe maintenance and improves the capability of sustainable product evolution.
In Poland, the modular design and sustainable evolution architecture of the APM5950 cabinet facilitate PV access, greatly increasing the proportion of green energy use in the network and reducing carbon emissions.
Intelligent convergence: The new-generation APM supports intelligent service-based energy, power, and temperature adjustment to further increase the energy efficiency of sites by 10%. Service-based energy adjustment allows for dynamic off-peak charging and discharging, reducing electricity costs by 5%. Service-based power adjustment enables low-efficiency modules to intelligently hibernate, improving the conversion efficiency by 3% to 5%. Service-based temperature adjustment supports precise cabinet temperature control through association with base station services, reducing the power consumption of air conditioners by more than 10%.
In China, the APM5950 cabinets help build green sites together with base station equipment such as MetaAAUs, ultra-wideband RRUs, and energy-efficient SDIF antennas, helping operators achieve green 5G target networks.
Aaron Jiang, President of Huawei’s SingleRAN Product Line, said:
“Winning the Red Dot Design Award is testament to our strength in industrial design and technological innovation of products. We will continue to improve the ‘Green Site, Green Network, Green Operation’ solution through technological innovation to support operators’ green and sustainable development.”
The Red Dot Design Award is among the top three design awards in the world, the other two being the iF Design Award of Germany and the IDEA of the United States. It is recognized globally as a mark of creativity and quality design. Under the motto of “In Search of Good Design and Innovation”, it is awarded to the most outstanding products among tens of thousands of submissions each year.
