ICT and Environment TIA David Su, NIST DOCUMENT #:GSC13-PLEN-28 FOR:Presentation SOURCE:TIA AGENDA ITEM:Opening -- Agenda 6.9 CONTACT(S):David Su and Dan Bart Submission Date: July 1, 2008
TIA’s ‘Green’ Drive Environmental Regulatory Tracking TIA’s Green Initiative includes an Environmental Intelligence Analysis service, EIATRACK, which monitors, translates and analyzes product-oriented legislation and regulation worldwide. The service covers: RoHS – Restriction of Hazardous Substances WEEE – Waste of Electronic and Electrical Equipment REACH – Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical Substances EuP - Energy using Products DfE - Design for the Environment Energy Efficiency Packaging and Labeling Tracking and analyzing environmental regulations worldwide
TIA’s ‘Green’ Drive Environmental Regulatory Tracking (cont.) The legal expertise provided by EIATRACK is worth millions The cost of compliance with European regulations alone is estimated to be nearly a trillion dollars The cost of noncompliance could cost millions – the fines that the EU gives to noncompliant companies can be upwards of $50 million EIATRACK content valued at over $5 million More than110 international jurisdictions covered Subscription cost is revenue based as low as $4,500 annually EUROPE Prof. Lucas Bergkamp AMERICAS Paul Hagen ASIA-PACIFIC Tad Ferris AUSTRALIA, AFRICA Andrew Sweatman

Data Centers US Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) rating system focuses on various Divisions of the Construction Specifications Institute’s (CSI) MasterFormat™ Division List. Cabling is proposed to be addressed in Division 27 - Communications. BICSI has started an effort to get the USGBC to recognize Division 27. TIA is considering teaming with BICSI in this effort. –Increasing scale of computer data centers makes them major users of power. Energy cost is a major component of data center costs. –TIA-942 Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers TIA (March 2008) Data Center Coaxial Cabling Specifications and Application Distances Standard contains “green” provisions including: –hot/cold aisles to improve HVAC efficiency –site selection
Data Centers -- Future work TR-42 –TIA-942 Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers TIA-942 Addendum 2 – future project. –Expansion of temperature and humidity ranges will allow for lower power consumption and reduction of HVAC capacity. The scope of subcommittee TR-42.3 (Pathways and Spaces) relates to CSI MasterFormat™ divisions A task group has been established to consider new “green” projects. –TIA-569-B Addendum 1: Temperature and Humidity Requirements for Telecommunications Spaces – future project. Will allow for lower power consumption and reduction of HVAC capacity. –Coordination opportunity with IEEE. TR-42.7 (Copper Cabling Components) will draft a liaison to the IEEE requesting information on pending “green” applications and how cabling can impact these initiatives. IEEE 802.3az (Energy-Efficient Ethernet) is a task group already working on the application side – this may present another opportunity for TIA to coordinate with IEEE.
TIA Standards and the Environment -- Strategic Directions TIA standards allow for more efficient and effective communications. –Better communications alternatives means less travel, less use of energy, less pollution. –TIA is working to improve and standardize Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Intelligent Transportation means less travel, congestion, energy use, and pollution. –Improved battery performance in handheld and mobile devices, i.e., less energy use, more efficient. TIA GREEN Standards initiative: –What standards or projects each TIA group has developed or started that could be termed “green” in some way? –How each committee’s member companies participate in other “green-related” standards activities? BUT, standards are needed in other areas too, including data and measurement standards.
Ground, Space, and Atmospheric Optical Measurements Quantify Earth’s Energy Balance Kiehl, J. T. and Trenberth, K. E., 1997 Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., 78, Understanding Our Environment Measurements, Measurements
Sensors are Deployed in Challenging Environments WMO and ITU Handbook “Use of Radio Spectrum for Metrology”
Global Climate Observation System (GCOS) Surface Network Under the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Sensors are Deployed Internationally
Data for Our Environment Metrics – How and what to measure? Measurements need to be based on units traceable to the SI System (SI = Système Internationale). Calibration - Accuracy of sensors and measuring instruments need to be maintained. Management and Archival of Environmental Data – –“Datasets, and ancillary information such as metadata, must be preserved for decades and stored in ways that promote (1) access as data needs change; (2) reprocessing as errors are discovered or calibration is improved; (3)integration as new data products, algorithms, and data technologies are developed; and (4) user-friendly access tools. Climate research problems will inevitably require that scientists use combinations of datasets from many sources; satellite, aircraft, in situ, and even socio-economic data.” -- Climate Data Records from Environmental Satellites, National Academy of Sciences
WMO-CIPM Partnership to Facilitate SI Traceability World Meteorological Organization (WMO) International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) “...have agreed to work together to ensure that data related in particular to measurements of state and composition of atmosphere and water resources, coming from the programmes organized under the auspices of the WMO, are properly based on units traceable to the SI through the procedures of the CIPM MRA and the Technical Regulations of the WMO.”
Standards Needed for Data Management Data representation for interoperability of tools and algorithms. Data storage for easy access, processing, and integration from multiple sources. Data archival for long-term observations.
