Read this case study from EkkoSense. It explores how Virgin Media O2 is radically overhauling its data centres and core network sites with brand new, energy-efficient cooling equipment to regulate temperatures at the sites that keep its mobile network running.

Key Challenges

Keeping customers connected is the number one priority, but that cannot be at the expense of the environment. Data centre cooling – as they carry more data, they know they need to evolve their network to use energy in a smarter way – was the driving factor behind the upgrade.

The Solution

Virgin Media O2 looked at several different toolsets in the marketplace, but chose EkkoSense because their team offered the flexibility to work together to develop a product that was tailored to their needs.

Investing in upgrading their network not only allows them to meet customer demand, it will also help hit their efficiency targets – as they head towards net zero by 2025.
