On quantifying the energy-efficiency of green leverages in wired networks

Intership realized in summer 2015 in the Myriads team of the Inria of Rennes (France), supervised by Anne-Cécile Orgerie.


Two main techniques have emerge to decrease the power consumption of wired networks. The first one called « Adaptive Link Rate » allows modulation of the link's data rate, and thereby, it offer better control over power consumption. The second one, called « Low Power Idle » allows to power off non utilized network's nodes.

In this article, we propose to evaluate and compare the energy-efficiency of these two techniques. For this purpose, each of them has been implemented into the widely-used ns-3 network simulator as a part of the ECOFEN module.
