Abstract
Both bandwidth demand and energy consumption of ICT and communication networks is increasing and optical networks are regarded to provide high bandwidth solutions while enabling more energy efficiency. In this article we give an overview of energy consumption in access and core networks with a focus on optical technologies. Also, possible strategies to enable power reductions are discussed.
Keywords
optical fibre subscriber loops, bandwidth allocation
