Iceotope has unveiled its latest KUL RAN server, which it claims can deliver telcos power consumption savings of 20 percent.

The company, which specializes in data center cooling technologies, has paired with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Intel.

According to Iceotope, KUL RAN (2U), features a 19-inch short-depth form factor and comes with HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen11 servers, along with 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

It's Iceotope's second generation KUL RAN server, after launching the first edition in July, also with HPE and Intel.

At the time, Iceotope said the server was designed to support high-density, low-latency Edge, virtualized RAN, and 5G services.

Iceotope states that its latest plug-and-play server is "optimized for high-density, low latency radio access network (RAN) and Edge computing services, and can operate in the "harshest environments."

Iceotope claims that the new hardware reduces server power consumption by up to 20 percent, and can reduce component failure rates by up to 30 percent.

"Global energy costs and Net Zero commitments are factoring strongly into operators' strategic planning and financial bottom lines," said David Craig, CEO at Iceotope. "Our new KUL RAN (2U) solution can have a real impact as operators explore their extreme Edge strategies."

Iceotope notes that the product offers thermal shock, dust, and airborne protection in harsh environments, while it can operate in temperatures ranging between -40°C to +55°C.

During last year's Mobile World Congress event, Iceotope paired with HPE, Intel, and nVent to create a new scalable Open RAN liquid-cooling offering, Ku:l Extreme, aimed at supporting 'Far Edge' computing across the entire telco data center estate.

Iceotope received £30 million ($38m) in funding in 2022 from a syndicate of investors led by Singapore-based investment firm ABC. The round also included nVent.
