Chairs: Rod Tucker, University of Melbourne, Australia; Mario Pickavet, Ghent University – IBBT, Belgium
 
We.9.Le Mt-Blanc.1
ENERGY-EFFICIENT OPTICS: WHERE AND WHAT FOR?
Dan Kilper, Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent, USA
Optical transmission provides efficiency in telecommunication networks through its capacity and scaling benefits. Recent equipment trends coupled with capacity challenges indicate that efficiency improvements are falling behind traffic growth, bringing focus to energy and integration.
 
We.9.Le Mt-Blanc.2
HOW CAN OPTICS SUPPORT THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF ICT?
Christoph Lange, Andreas Gladisch, Deutsche Telekom AG, Laboratories, Germany
Optical transmission and networking enable structural changes in ICT networks. Directions are discussed of how network architectures relying on optics can support network energy efficiency improvements with regard to different network sections.
We.9.Le Mt-Blanc.3
OPTICAL PATH TECHNOLOGIES FOR ULTRA-LOW POWER CONSUMING NETWORKS
Hiroshi Ishikawa, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan
Optical path technologies are being developed for ultra-low energy consuming networks. Presented are switching devices, dispersion compensation device, node technology, and network resource management technologies. Demonstration of a small scale path system is also presented.
