Computer Networks

On “Green Communication Networks”

Communication networks are increasingly leveraged to reduce the environmental impact of human activities by improving energy efficiency in many sectors of the world economy. Moreover, networking functionalities are central to power delivery and promise benefits through smart grid applications and support for distributed renewable sources. On the other hand, it has been recognized that the energy consumption and scalability of communication networks themselves can become an issue due to the rapid growth of traffic and infrastructure. The design of “green” networks has become a focus for research in academia and industry. Keeping pace with network expansion requires new paradigms for energy use in networks including improving the efficiency of networking devices and adapting the network energy consumption to the varying traffic load.
This special issue solicits submissions of original work and survey papers on all aspects of green wired and wireless networks.
Topics of interested include (but are not limited to):
− Architectures and protocols for improving energy efficiency in wired networks
− New energy-aware routing and switching devices
− Energy consumption measurements and models
− Networking issues for energy efficient content distribution and applications
− Networking issues for green cloud computing
− Energy efficient networking technologies (Ethernet, Optical networks, IP networks, MPLS, etc.)
− Design of energy efficient networks
− Green future mobile networks
− MAC, routing and transport protocols for green wireless
− Energy efficient wireless devices
− Energy management of wireless access networks
− Energy-aware radio planning
− Bounds and limits on energy efficiency
− Energy-Performance tradeoff
− Experiments, testbeds and prototypes
