Green Touch Hopes to Boost Network Efficiency a Thousand-Fold
Jan 12, 2010, 9:37 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Bell Labs recently announced the launch of a global consortium that's aimed at improving the efficiency of the world's communications networks by a factor of one thousand. The group. called Green Touch, includes companies such as AT&T, China Mobile, Portugal Telecom, Swisscom, and Telefonica, and research facilities run by Bell Labs, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), and Freescale Semiconductor. To put that number into perspective, Green Touch notes, "A thousand-fold reduction is roughly equivalent to being able to power the world’s communications networks, including the Internet, for three years using the same amount of energy that it currently takes to run them for a single day." The group will meet for the first time in February.
