Energy Efficiency for Telecommunication Equipment: Methodology for Measurement and Reporting - Transport Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 February 2009|
This document provides the methodology to be used by vendors and
third party independent laboratories in the formation of a
telecommunications energy efficiency ratio. The requirements and
definitions in this document are for the Transport class of
products that are deployed in the telecommunications industry. This
supplemental standard represents one part of the larger ATIS suite
of standards concerning Telecommunications Energy Efficiency
The initial document scope is modest to start with the intention of refining the data to be provided, the measurement methods and the reporting format over time.
This document provides a set of definitions, requirements, and guidelines for calculating the Telecommunications Energy Efficiency Ratio (TEER) of a system or network configuration consisting of a given product or group of related or inter-connected products. The document will also provide standardized definitions of transport interface operational data rates and conditions to be used when calculating the TEER of any given configuration. The test methodology used to independently verify the power consumption used as part the TEER calculation is addressed in ATIS-0600015.2009.
This document (and supporting documentation) is intended to be used by communication network operators, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, and test laboratories as a standard method for determining the energy consumption required to address a specific application. By comparing the TEER reports of multiple configurations that meet a common set of requirements, a communications network operator can select equipment configuration that meets their energy consumption targets. In order to normalize the results, the network operator is required to specify the configuration details through an application description process.
