Juniper Networks Inc. and Ixia, a provider of IP performance test systems, today announced the formation of the Energy Consumption Rating (ECR) Initiative, a framework for measuring the energy efficiency of network and telecom devices.
At an event hosted by Ixia, key definitions and methodology of the ECR initiative were unveiled , along with a live technology demonstration.
The ECR metric creates a common energy denominator between different network and telecom systems operating within a single class.
The ECR methodology defines the procedures and conditions for measurements and calculations, and can be readily implemented with industry-standard test equipment.
The introduction of the ECR initiative for the measurement of telecom energy efficiency will be held at Ixia’s iSimCity proof-of-concept lab in Santa Clara, Calif.
