With Great Power Comes Great Electricity Bills - Reducing grid dependance of the Access Network as it evolves toward 10G and beyond (2022)

By Tobias Peck, EnerSys

This paper will first give a brief overview of network powering as we move toward 10G and beyond to understand the urgency of developing more efficient network powering. From there, the goal will be to map the power consumed by the network from the point of connection to the utility, through every transition point where the energy is transformed, transported, split, or ultimately consumed, to identify where energy is being used without creating value for customers. Finally, with our map in hand, we will discuss where efforts can most effectively be applied to reduce energy consumption and associated cost from the Access Network.
