Iceotope STL Report - Telco Operators could save millions of dollars per year

New Iceotope Sponsored Report: Telco Operators Can Save Millions of Dollars Per Year Using Precision Liquid Cooling Solutions

In a report released this week, STL Partners reports that  advanced edge sustainability strategies, including Precision Liquid Cooling, can reduce telco providers energy usage by 3-5%, equating to approximately $40 million in energy costs and more than one million tons of carbon dioxide. The report, “Sustainability Insights: Navigating Sustainable Edge Strategies,” equates the carbon dioxide savings to the emissions for a typical large group operator. Although traditional data center sustainability has made considerable progress, the sustainability of edge computing is often neglected due to diverse environments. Customized strategies tailored to specific situations are crucial when it comes to these sustainable edge operations. 

In the report (sponsored by Iceotope), STL Partners looks at five subcategories of specialized cooling technologies:

  • Liquid-to-Air Precision Liquid Cooling
  • Liquid-to-Liquid Precision Liquid Cooling
  • Tank Immersion (Single and Two Phase)
  • Direct to Chip Water Cooling
  • Specialized Hardware – Ruggedised Servers. 

Liquid-to-Air Precision Liquid Cooling technology — adopted by Iceotope for its KUL RAN solution — ranked highest amongst the cooling technologies, having been found to score well across six of the seven measurement criteria: legacy site reuse, energy use, water consumption, longevity of equipment, limited maintenance and COTS hardware adaptation.

“With edge computing projected to grow to over $450 billion in 2030, it is critical this growth is developed in as sustainable manner as possible — arguably more so than traditional centralized cloud,” said Philip Laidler, director of consulting for STL Partners. “This report examines the multitude of factors that need be considered when defining your edge sustainability strategy. There is no one-size-fits-all answer and edge operators must select the optimal advanced sustainability strategy based on their unique context.”

“As more data moves to the edge, new challenges for telco providers emerge. Greater sustainability, energy efficiency and serviceability across distributed workloads is needed more than ever before,” said Nathan Blom, Chief Commercial Officer for Iceotope. “We designed KUL RAN specifically to reduce power consumption and maintenance costs for telco providers as they bring data-center class compute to the extreme Far Edge. This report from STL Partners validates that advanced sustainability strategies can be a game changer for the Telco Edge.”

Precision Liquid Cooling efficiently captures nearly 100% of the heat generated by servers, cutting energy use by up to 40% and any water consumption by 96% from the cloud to the edge. This innovative technology eliminates hotspots, minimizes wasted space, and reduces water consumption, all while maintaining compatibility with the same rack-based architecture as air-cooled systems.
