The Internet is currently the largest communication network in the World, able to interconnect more than 2
billion people. As services are converging into the Internet, the Network is expected to grow exponentially
in the near future, leading to an increased carbon footprint. Indeed, routers, base stations, data centers
are designed for performance, not for power efficiency. The seminar aims at providing an overview of the c
urrent status of the Internet in terms of energy efficiency, focusing on backbone and data center design m
ethodologies required to enter the era of the Green Internet.
Fabrizio Granelli is IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer for 2012-13, and Associate Professor at the Dept.
