SEMINAR: The Power of Residential Connectivity
Customer premise equipment (CPE: largely set-top boxes and network equipment) are rightly the focus of U.S. energy efficiency policy measures such as ENERGY STAR, state standards and voluntary agreements. This presentation compares average CPE power draw to the equivalent power draw of cable system network and back-end equipment, discusses CPE policy development in North America and Europe, and shares new information about how to reduce power supply losses in service provider data centers by optimizing power supply design for low load points.
