  journal={2010 IEEE International Conference on Communications},
Compared to energy-awareness research in wireless and copper networks, less attention has been given to energy awareness in optical counterparts. In this paper, we introduce energy-aware traffic grooming problems for optical networks. We show that by looking further into the modular physical architecture of a node during request allocations, we can significantly reduce the number of active components and, hence, total energy consumption in the network, especially when traffic load is low.
