Fiber Deep ensures green strategy success through reduced energy consumption and associated cost savings
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Aug. 31, 2009 – Cable operators have a lot to consider when assessing the environmental and financial benefits of green optical networks. To help address these questions, Aurora Networks, Inc., the only optical transport solution provider focused on delivering a cost-effective, optimized platform for next-generation cable services, has developed a checklist identifying five “must-have” components for green optical networks.
As cable operators and vendors implement strategies that aim to reduce energy usage and other environmental impacts, the cable industry can implement the most effective and green optical transport solutions to deliver today’s subscriber-demanded services.
According to the IEEE’s Energy Efficient Ethernet Committee, telecommunications network equipment alone accounts for 1 percent of all power consumption in the United States. Also, research from the International Telecommunications Union estimates that the global more
