PROJECT TITLE :
A low-cost methodology for profiling the power consumption of network equipment
Rate adaptation technologies aim at establishing a linear relationship between power consumption and traffic load in packet networks. They rely on power profiles of network components, which map system configurations and traffic masses onto power consumption levels, for the selection of network resources to position into low-power states and to identify new system styles with high power-saving yields. We tend to introduce a technique for profiling the ability consumption of network systems that reconciles modeling accuracy with value containment and rapidity in the preparation and execution of power measurements. We apply the methodology to network systems from multiple vendors and notice it capable of delivering a clear message: the ability savings enabled by protocol and system software upgrades that support demandtimescale rate adaptation are worthwhile, but also largely inferior to those attainable with a brand new generation of hardware platforms that pervasively deploy packet-timescale rate adaptation.
