Task 9 - Efficiency of Data Centres & Wide Area Networks

This task will investigate the introduction of “intelligent efficiency” measures for data centres (DCs) and wide area networks (WANs).  The objective is to investigate the estimated energy consumption of DCs and WANs and describe “intelligent” practices and efforts (including any new and innovative techniques) to reduce their energy consumption.

A report is expected in late 2018.
