In the UK, British Telecom is the largest single power consumer. [7][8]

5 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II5 Network energy consumption Moores and Gilders laws [2][3] have not had the expected counterpart in power consumption reduction (Jevons paradox [4] ) As a consequence, the total power required per node is growing faster and faster. Network infrastructures consume: 22 GW 1,16% worldwide produced electrical energy Growth rate: 12% per year [24]

6 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II6 Network energy consumption Evolution of the bandwidth capacity and energy-per-bit consumption Period windows: 10 years Bandwidth increment: x1000 Energy per bit: ÷ 100 Energy consumption increment: x10 more than 10 years ago Technological advancements foreseen by Moores law have not been fully compensated by the same growth in energy-efficiency [47] Source: [24]

7 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II7 Energy consumption: access vs backbone Backbone energy Consumption 2009: < 10% Backbone energy Consumption 2017: ~ 40% Energy consumption currently dominated by the access network because of the high number of end-point devices [31] l ADSL link: 2.8 W, while using as the access infrastructure l GPON (gigabit-capable passive optical network): only 0.5 W (80% improvement) l With rising traffic volume, the major consumption is expected to shift from access to core networks [12]

8 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II8 Environmental impacts l Humans activities have severe impacts on the environment Energy-consumption, resource exploitation GHG emissions, climate changes, global warming & dimming, pollution l Human ecological footprint measures the humanitys demand on the biosphere 1,5 planet Earths in 2007 [48] l Carbon footprint Measures the total set of GHG emissions l Three dimensions Energy consumption (Wh) GHG emissions (kg CO 2 ) Energy Cost ()

Major contributors to the GH effect: water vapor 36–72% carbon dioxide CO 2 9–26% methane 4–9% ozone 3–7% nitrous oxide ~ 1% chlorofluorocarbons ~ 1% Global Warming Potential (GWP) CO 2 equivalent (CO2e)

10 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II10 Advantages: Virtually endless (5.000 millions years) Zero carbon (green): no GHG emissions nor pollution during the use phase Free energy: zero costs in the use phase (except maintenance operations) Renewable Energy Sources are beneficial over their entire Life-Cycle [34] Drawbacks Low yield (solar panels efficiency ~25% as maximum) Not always available (e.g., day/night cycle) nor always foreseeable Not always applicable as the only energy sources (e.g. mobility) Allow paradigm shift from centralized to distributed energy system (Smart Grid) Centralized system: 1 big power plant giving energy to the whole region Distributed system: n small power plants providing energy for private use and putting surplus energy into the power grid Follow-the-whatever paradigm Energy form a cost to a revenue source Renewable energies

11 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II11 Towards energy-efficiency Energy-Efficiency refers to a technology designed to reduce the equipment energy consumption without affecting the performance, according to the do more for less paradigm. It takes into account the environmental impact of the used resources and constraints the computations to be executed taking into account the ecological and potentially the economic impact of the used resources. Such solutions are usually referred to as eco- friendly solutions.

12 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II12 Is energy efficiency sufficient? The simplest approach is improving the efficiency of the individual devices involved Energy efficiency alone is not sufficient to achieve effective results (the Jevons paradox occur)

13 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II13 The energy-oriented paradigm Energy-Awareness refers to an intelligent technology that adapts its behavior or performance based on the current working load and on the quantity and quality of energy that the equipment is expending (energy-feedback information). It implies knowledge of the (dirty or green) sources of energy that supply the equipment thus differentiating how it is currently being powered. Energy- aware solutions are usually referred to as eco-aware solutions. Energy-Oriented Infrastructures Energy-Efficiency + Energy-Awareness in a holistic, sustainable and systemic approach with smart grid power distribution network and entire life cycle assessment (LCA)

14 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II14 An energy oriented approach Energy as an additional constraint to operate into network and data centers infrastructures Current worldwide energy shortages Rising costs of energy (as fossil sources become scarcer) Green House effect, Global Warming and Pollution Need for alternative and renewable energy sources Growing interests of governments and society into eco-concerns Lack of a comprehensive energy-oriented paradigm Energy-efficient + energy-aware solutions in a systemic approach Renewable energy sources Energy models The basic Principle Do more for less!!!

15 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II15 Energy-aware architectures Current router architectures are not energy-aware Source: [25] UDP traffic with different packet sizes UDP traffic with medium packet size with different features enabled average offered load of 75% The difference between idle and heavily loaded router vary only of 3% (about 25 W on 750 W)… Energy consumption is a function of capacity, not throughput

16 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II16 Energy-aware architectures …power consumption of base system is 50% of full line cards configuration Source: [25] Power consumption for different installed line cards configurations of the GSR Cisco Router Power consumption for different installed line cards configurations of the 7507Cisco Router Focus on energy-aware architectures that can adapt their behavior, and so, their energy consumption, to the current traffic loads (advocated both by standardization bodies and governmental programs and assumed in many literature sources [25]) …but…

17 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II17 Optical Networks are cheaper Optical transport (WDM) consumes relatively little energy Access network dominates at low rates Eliminating the O/E/O converters is not the only solution Network routers dominate at higher rates: reduce hop count improve router efficiency (technology) manage routers better (sleep states) develop better network architectures using fewer routers manage distribution and replication of contents Number of Hops in the Internet [31]

18 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II18 Optical vs Electronic devices Total power consumption vs the aggregated bandwidth for electronic and optical router technologies Optical Cross-Connect node (OXC) with micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) switching logic consumes about 1.2 W per single 10 Gb/s capable interface, whereas a traditional IP router requires about 237 W per port.

22 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II22 ALR & LPI hybrid concept l Idea: temporarily switching off or downclocking unloaded interfaces and line cards (per interface sleep mode) to save energy l Adaptive Link Rate (ALR) and Low Power Idle (LPI)

23 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II23 ALR & LPI ALR: Native and working link rate dynamically modify the link rate according to the real traffic needs LPI: transmission on single interface is stopped when there is no data to send and quickly resumed when new packets arrive in contrast with the continuous IDLE signal used in legacy systems few microseconds Ts = ~2 s, Tw = ~ 4 s Power consumption in LPI: ~10% of active mode Power consumption in transition ~50%-100% of active mode Depends on the packet arrival distribution -> buffering, packet coalescing and coordinated Ethernet [6][12][13]

27 © Technical University of Catalonia - Second University of Naples - University of Naples Federico II27 Conclusions Energy as a new constraint – considering the current energy consumption growth rate – even stronger than the bandwidth capacity Energy-aware architectures are necessary to minimize the energy consumption Assess the power consumption of ICT and network infrastructures l In general: l Energy-efficient architectures l Energy-aware algorithms & protocols l Energy-oriented infrastructures ( sustainable systemic approach + LCA)
