Intelligent power solutions take center stage at Data Centre World 2019

ABB will showcase leading-edge smart power and automation technologies, which focus on enhancing flexibility, efficiency and performance for data center operators.


During the global event, taking place on 12th and 13th March at London’s ExCel, the company will demonstrate how data centers of the future will require smart, safe and sustainable infrastructure, which can scale quickly to meet the growing demand for data-rich services and products.

With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence and robotization in commercial environments, greater dependence on consumer technologies, such as streaming services, e-mobility and 5G, demand for data is growing exponentially.

Experts will demonstrate how ABB Ability™ Data Center Automation has emerged as the leading solution to support one of the world’s largest telecommunications network equipment suppliers, Ericsson, as it focuses its efforts to automate and control operations at its Global Information and Communication Technology Center in Rosersberg, Sweden.

The all-in-one automation solution has been deployed to help Ericsson support its teams while also improving reliability and energy consumption at the mission critical site in Sweden, which tests and trials products and services before they are released to market.

ABB Ability™ Data Center Automation has enabled Ericsson to automate and control operations not only across hardware and software platforms, but also across power, cooling and energy management systems, including the Building Management System (BMS), Power Management System (PMS) and Energy Management System (EMS). The solution has helped Ericsson to achieve an estimated 40 percent in energy savings.

ABB Data Center Solutions provides a holistic electrical distribution and control system with embedded intelligence for complete scalability, ease and insight. Turning their own data into actionable insight, operators can make intelligent and informed choices in how they manage their energy and control the overall performance through deep and granular component visibility.

Paul Johnson, data center segment leader for ABB in the UK, said: “In a few years, the industry has evolved and moved out of the back-room closet, where a series of connected products and systems with parameter settings and controls operated.

“Now, larger commercial operations, some categorized as mega facilities, will have a series of interconnected products and systems entwined and housed across several locations, which require greater control and deeper insight to manage overall performance and spiraling energy resources.”

Over the course of the two-day event, ABB experts will take to the stage and share insight on the latest developments in smart grid technology and grid connections for data centers, explaining how data center operators can make informed decisions to optimize operations, control energy costs and minimize the likelihood of outages utilizing cutting-edge automation technology.

The three presentations, over the two days, will further detail how an elastic critical infrastructure enables data center operators to adapt, change and reconfigure their architecture to meet changing needs through modular system development to reduce CAPEX, even across legacy architectures.
