Energy Efficiency for Telecommunication Equipment: Methodology for Measurement and Reporting – General Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 May 2018|
This document provides the methodology to be used by vendors and third-party test laboratories in the formation of a telecommunications energy efficiency ratio (TEER). This document is the base standard for determining telecommunications energy efficiency. Supplemental standards to this general document, for specific types of equipment, will provide details on configurations, TEER formulas, and other pertinent details for formulating the TEER value. This document is considered applicable to wire-line or wireless network equipment to be deployed in controlled environments. This standard does not apply to network equipment that is designed to be solely utilized in an outside plant cabinet/enclosure.
Outside plant equipment is considered outside the scope of this standard at this time and may be added in a later revision to this standard.
The intent of this document, in conjunction with the associated supporting supplemental standards, is to create a uniform method for measuring telecommunication equipment energy consumption (power) as well as establishing efficiency metrics and reporting methods.
The concept of supplemental standards will allow for the development of individual standards to address specific classes of equipment.
This allows the set of standards (General Requirements plus supplemental) to address a wide array of equipment.
This method will permit the development of new supplemental standards to address new technologies as the need arises.
For example, ATIS-0600015.01 is the supplemental standard for Server Requirements and ATIS- 0600015.02 is the supplemental standard for Transport Requirements.
This document provides a uniform methodology to measure equipment power and define energy efficiency ratings for telecommunication equipment. This document serves as the base standard for all supplemental ATIS- 0600015.xx standards.
