Title: Nortel Converged Data Network Solution Evaluation of Energy Consumption and Projected Costs for a Converged LAN Campus, Data Center and WAN

Publication date:   08 July 2008
Document number:    208298

Abstract:

Nortel commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate a converged network infrastructure for enterprise users utilizing a wide array of Nortel switches, routers and IP phones to determine the energy usage at critical areas of deployment and to project the energy costs of operating the equipment over a five-year span.

Tolly Group engineers compared the energy consumption of the Nortel products, in terms of the power to operate the devices, as well as the power consumed in relation to heat dissipation. Results were compared with products from Cisco Systems, Inc. Tolly Group engineers measured the energy usage (in terms of watts) for switch operation and heat dissipation for switches deployed in large- and medium-sized enterprise networks, in mid-sized companies, and enterprise branch offices. Engineers also tested IP phone endpoints from both companies.

Tests were conducted in May 2008.
