Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform meets TEER specs

SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 -- Fujitsu says its FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) has met the energy efficiency standards defined in the Telecommunications Energy Efficiency Ratio (TEER) metric, part of a group of power-saving standards developed by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS).

SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 -- Fujitsu says its FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) has met the energy efficiency standards defined in the Telecommunications Energy Efficiency Ratio (TEER) metric, part of a group of power-saving standards developed by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS).

Released in May 2009, the TEER standard provides a methodology for measuring and reporting energy consumption as well as quantifying a network component’s ratio of work performed to energy consumed.

The FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP is the second Fujitsu Network Communications system to meet TEER standards, following the Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 4500 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP).

According to an Ovum study, in mature markets, the cost of energy alone can represent up to 10 percent of network operating expense. While demand for wireline and wireless broadband connectivity continues to accelerate, service providers are upgrading existing, and implementing new, communications infrastructures. As they do so, controlling power consumption has become a priority for budgetary and environmental sustainability reasons, Fujitsu says.
