A lot of studies on high efficiency energy for backbone networks, EPON (Ethernet Passive Optical Network), networking equipment and IDC (International Data Center) are being carried out by many Korean and foreign researchers. For EPON, research on the development of protocols for higher energy efficiency at the PHY/MAC layers and the enactment of standards, and the improvement of energy efficiency of EPON devices is being conducted, while for networking equipment such as routers and switches and IDCs, research on saving the energy consumed by devices and the management of energy efficiency using power monitoring, cooling devices and metering technologies is being conducted.
