Energy Efficient Architectures for Optical Networks


Abstract— In this paper we study the energy consumption in optical networks. We propose a cluster based architecture for minimizing the energy consumed in transparent optical networks. The network topology is partitioned as disjoint clusters and nodes in the clusters adopt sleep cycles. Using anycast routing, we obtain a trade-off between the energy… (More)
