  • Green networking in the Internet becomes increasingly important. In a high-performance router, the dominant power consumer on the Internet, half of its total power usage goes into the line-cards, where the traffic managers inside consume most of it. In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient design on the traffic manager architecture for packet buffering and storage. Unlike traditional routers where packets are always kept in off-chip memory, we propose a dynamic on-chip and off-chip… CONTINUE READING
