Global Internet traffic has increased tremendously and this trend is anticipated to continue for the next years. Consequently, network's performance and users' satisfaction cannot be guaranteed. The necessity for adequate bandwidth to carry this increased traffic has led to the addition of resources to the current core network and service infrastructures, thus affecting the levels of the consumed energy and generally resulting in higher OPerational EXpenditures (OPEX). Obviously, tackling such… CONTINUE READING
