Measuring and Modeling Energy Consumption to Design a Green NetFPGA Giga-Router

One of the most weighty matter in the Internet today is the waste of energy due to the fact that consumption of network nodes is not tuned with the input traffic. For this reason, the implementation of rate adaptation facilities in the routers constitutes a challenging problem to make the network energy efficient. Rate adaptation in the green routers is usually achieved by scaling the processing power according to the data rate the router has to manage; at this purpose the clock frequency driving the router processes can be modified according to the input data rate.
