Energy Efficient Ethernet being put to the test

by Bob Brown

“The pre-testing process will allow [vendors] to be able to deliver new solutions in the quickest possible timeframe,” said Jeff Lapak, senior engineer for the UNH-IOL, in a statement.

Energy Efficient Ethernet, or 802.3az in IEEE terminology, is an emerging standard designed to cut down on the energy used by Ethernet networks. Standard support will enable Ethernet devices, such as switches and server cards, to enter low-power idle mode when not transmitting data in order to drastically reduce energy use.  Read More
