  1. 1. Measuring the “Green-ness” of Networking Devices This material is for informational purposes only and subject to change without notice. It describes Ixia’s present plans to develop and make available to its customers certain products, features and functionality. Ixia is only obligated to provide those deliverables specifically included in a written agreement between Ixia and the customer. ©2009 Ixia. All rights reserved.
  2. 2. Why Care About Energy Efficiency? 10,000 Router Capacity x2.9 / 18m 1,000 Moore’s law x2 / 18m 100 Silicon speed x1.5 / 18m 10 DRAM access rate x1.1 / 18m  System requirements grow faster 1 than silicon and cooling technology 1993 1995 1997 1999 2001 2003 2005  Pushing the limits • Total system power Source: N. McKeown, Stanford University (Modified) • Individual device power • Cooling infrastructure
  3. 3. Service Providers Care! Verizon Sets Energy Efficiency Standard Verizon announced what it says are the global telecom industry’s first energy- Typical 20,000 sqft Data Center To help Japan to reduce by efficiency standards, designed meet its Kyoto Protocol target, Uses 8 Megawatts NTT Group aims to reduce electric power consumption 20% the power consumed by new telecom- related equipment starting 2010 to the level of 1990 by Jan. 1, 2009. BT 21C 20,000 sqft Data Center Uses 3.2 Megawatts
  4. 4. Why Care About Energy? 1. Electricity costs rose 88% in US since 2003 (US EIA data) Energy has become a non-trivial OPEX item 2. Worldwide legislation changes Energy efficiency and climate control EMEA: reduce CO2 by 20% by 2020 UK: reduce CO2 by 20% by 2010 Japan: reduce CO2 to 6% under 1990 level by 2010 USA: no government goal yet (but likely to change) 3. Carriers and businesses are setting new targets  Reduced energy consumption  Reduced heat dissipation  reduced space requirements (volume footprint)
  5. 5. What Does This Mean for Data Networking?  Telecom facilities are power hogs • Direct contributors to CO2 emission • 2-3x collateral energy loss (conversion, cooling)  Data networking is still a growth industry • Global connectivity relies massively on routing and switching and this dependency increases • Significant increases in traffic are expected • This should NOT result in higher OPEX Vendors need to respond to the challenge
  6. 6. Standardization – Just Beginning  First paper on the subject in late 2008  Developed the Energy Consumption Rating (ECR) for Classes of Networking Devices  Energy Efficiency for Telecommunication Equipment  Method for Measurement and Reporting for Routing and Ethernet Switch Products  International Organization for Energy Efficiency has Began Preliminary Investigations
  7. 7. ECR Initiative – ECR Measurement
  8. 8. ATIS – TEER Measurement
  9. 9. Test Setup for Energy Efficiency Measurement
  10. 10. Real-world Energy Efficiency Testing - IxGreen™ Ixia solution - Industry’s first fully integrated “green” test solution – Fully integrated, time correlated, accurate power measurements – IMIX Real world frame size distribution – Real-time result analysis and logging – Fully automated tests and detailed reports – ECR – ATIS based TEER measurement – Switch/Router Network device classes supported
  11. 11. Example IxGreen Results
