Global IP traffic is predicted to reach 63.9 exabytes per month in2014. This growth rate has not only driven up demand for bandwidth from the Internet backbone infrastructure but has also presented providers with new challenges such as enormous energy consumption, which causes global warming. To address these issues, load adaptive energy saving schemes were proposed which is for backbone IP networks use dynamic transport circuit services to adapt the active network resources to the current traffic demand in order to reduce the network's energy consumption.
