Weather impacts almost everything we do. Severe weather can cause disasters, but also smaller daily weather changes have great impact on people and industries. Using microwave links that are part of mobile communication networks, local weather can be registered much faster and therefor relevant actions can be taken sooner.
It works like this: within every telecom network, there are microwave links that operate in the electromagnetic spectrum. If rain is passing through the path of the microwave link, a minor decrease in the signal occurs. It doesn’t have any effect on the data transmission, but this little change makes it possible to know exactly where rain is falling. And now, with the heavy build out of mobile networks, we can explore using this anomaly as a key competent in local weather radar.

Transcript of "Micro weather"

  1. 1. Micro weather Local weather monitoring – with Global impact People Business Society Unleash the potential of microwave links as a local weather radar – saving human lives, cutting cost to business, and reducing weather impact on society Page 1 © Ericsson AB 2014
  2. 2. Global challenges Solving Macro problems - the micro way $500bn US Dollar impact of Routine Weather variations in the USA National Science Foundation $200BN US Dollar cost of extreme weather of disasters - with exponential growth. >80% is water related. World Bank Page 2 © Ericsson AB 2014 $750BN US Dollar cost in wasted/lost food. More that 33% never reaches a mouth UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) 50-80% decrease of rain gauges in Europe and South America the past 25 years.. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
  3. 3. Micro weather Opportunities Unleashing new potential of mobile networks 1. Micro Monitoring via microwaves (MINI-LINKs) & other sensors Page 3 © Ericsson AB 2014 2. Data analysis and Now Casting to give real-time weather forecasts 3. Value flow for people, business & society
  4. 4. Microwave registering rain Rain attenuation data from MINI-LINK in Gothenburg, Sweden Ericsson MINI-LINK & SMHI* Rain gauges in Gothenburg View: http://132.196.241.205/ * Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute Page 4 © Ericsson AB 2014 Rain measurement with rain gauge vs. MINI-LINK
  5. 5. City water Management Optimize city water systems – in real time and everywhere Waste water systems - the most expensive infrastructure of cities Page 5 © Ericsson AB 2014 Micro Weather provides detailed information about local heavy rain Severe sewage overflow – optimize the system to cope with heavy rain
  6. 6. Agriculture More than one third of the food produced today is lost or wasted Increase the growth – weather is the key factor Precision in what to grow USPage 6 $15bn of US GDP - 12% sensitivity to routine weather changes* Cost: © Ericsson AB 2014 Transport to consumers – without waste *Weather sensibility according to National Science Foundation, US, U.S. ECONOMIC SENSITIVITY TO WEATHER VARIABILITY, 2011
  7. 7. Energy Local weather drives production and consumption of energy optimize renewable energy: wind, sun and water Page 7 © Ericsson AB 2014 Local weather analysis to manage consumption Supported by real time analytics
  8. 8. Early Warning system Extreme weather alerts to save lives and money Property Lives Infrastructure World Bank: Extreme weather costs US $200bn dollars. Dramatic rise from $50bn two decades ago Page 8 © Ericsson AB 2014
  9. 9. MINI-LINK FIGURES #1 in the market 820 customers Page 9 © Ericsson AB 2014 175 countries 3.0 million deployed
