Globe has deployed Nokia’s Interleaved Passive Active Antenna (IPAA+) radio solution in South Cotabato to support its network expansion and improve mobile services. The IPAA+ is a sustainable and high-capacity 4G/5G antenna that was specifically developed by Nokia for Globe. It utilizes advanced antenna interleaving technology, resulting in a compact solution that saves tower height space and does not increase wind load. This makes site acquisition and deployment faster and easier without the need for tower reinforcement or construction works. The IPAA+ has been tested in Tantangan, South Cotabato, showing a 5 percent efficiency improvement compared to legacy antennas and enabling wider coverage area to support a larger number of users. Globe commends Nokia for their collaboration and innovation, as it helps reduce energy costs and carbon emissions. Through the deployment of IPAA+ at approximately 50 sites in the Visayas and Mindanao islands, Globe aims to deliver a sustainable network and enhance connectivity for its customers. This initiative aligns with Globe’s commitment to adopting green network solutions, contributing to global carbon reduction goals, and achieving Net Zero status. The company has also received recognition for its efforts in energy efficiency, net zero progression, sustainability reporting, and overall sustainability as a large enterprise.
