Energy Efficient Traffic Engineering in Software Defined Backbone Networks

The Avalon working group will host a presentation by Radu Carpa on tuesday 21th of march, at 14h00 in amphi J. You are all welcome.

The rising traffic demands of today’s services – e.g. those relying on cloud computing, video-on-demand, and big-data processing – continue to demand increasing data transfer rates from underlying networks. Network operators, under continuous pressure to differentiate and deliver quality of service, often tackle this challenge by expanding network capacity, hence constantly adding new equipment, or increasing the rates of existing links. Unfortunately, it is expected that the energy consumption will shortly become the limiting factor in the growth of networking infrastructures. This presentation will focus on the mediocre job I did during my PhD in order to reduce the energy consumption of these networks while maintaining a reasonable quality of service.
