This research has been conducted to develop a mechanism to reduce power consumption during periods of various link utilization cases which helps to maintain the link status without quality degradation, by maintaining vital functions of network in order to support residual network traffic. This has been done by forming different classes of network traffic defined by upper and lower thresholds and re-routing the traffic along the respective receiver based on its capacity. This mechanism is done intelligently based on traffic pattern by machine algorithm (Neural Network).It is a traffic aware energy/power saving scheme. Significant amount of energy is saved in the network that runs on full capacity (even if it uses the ALR approach).
