Routing for Energy Minimization in the Speed Scaling Model

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors study network optimization that considers energy minimization as an objective. Studies have shown that mechanisms such as speed scaling can significantly reduce the power consumption of telecommunication networks by matching the consumption of each network element to the amount of processing required for its carried traffic. Most existing research on speed scaling focuses on a single network element in isolation. They aim for a network-wide optimization. Specifically, they study a routing problem with the objective of provisioning guaranteed speed/bandwidth for a given demand matrix while minimizing energy consumption.
