GREEN Benchmark identifies significant opportunities for power consumption reduction opportunities for ADSL and VDSL equipment

Brussels - Deployment of power efficient implementation of ADSL and VDSL networking equipment could lead to a reduction of up to 60% of their power consumption as demonstrated by the results of the first phase of the home gateway energy consumption Benchmark called “GREEN” (Green Router for Energy Efficient home Networking). The GREEN benchmark is an initiative of the European Telecommunications Network Operators Association (ETNO) which involves chip vendors as well as suppliers of Home Gateways (HG) and aims at elaborating solutions to achieve low-power-state consumption targets.

GREEN has been developed with the support of the Home Gateway Initiative (HGI) and provides a snapshot of current state of the art in energy efficiency of Home Gateways, showing the advantages of power consumption optimisation when the HG is supporting services or is performing a low level of operation. ETNO’s GREEN benchmark highlights the current best practice in meeting the power targets for Home Gateways set out by the European Code of Conduct on Broadband Equipment for the various power modes.
