The power consumption of the Internet is becoming more and more a key issue, and several projects are studying how to reduce its energy consumption. In this paper, we provide a first evaluation of the amount of redundant resources (nodes and links) that can be powered off from a network topology to reduce power consumption. We first formulate a theoretical evaluation that exploits random graph theory to estimate the fraction of devices that can be removed from the topology still guaranteeing… CONTINUE READING
