Special Issue "Energy-Efficient and Sustainable Networking"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2016)
Power consumption of communication networks has grown to become a critical issue, being that the Information and Communication Technology sector accounts for up to 7% of the entire electricity production. Additionally, user traffic is expected to notably increase in the future due to the rise in the number of subscribers as well as the continued expansion of bandwidth-hungry services.
In this context, energy-efficiency in networking has become of crucial importance. This issue welcomes solutions to reduce the energy consumption of both wired and wireless networks, across different layers, and targeting different network segments (i.e., access, metro/aggregation, and core). Additionally, a recent trend in networking highlights the need to understand the sustainability of energy-aware networks, focusing on the main effects triggered by energy-aware networks, as well as on the possibility to exploit renewable sources to power the communication devices. Therefore, this issue will consider also works targeting sustainable networks.
