Course Run Time:  6 hours, 13 minutes

Instructor: Fabrizio Granelli


Is it true that the Internet consumes more than 3% of all energy in World?

Does a search on the Internet consume the same amount of energy as preparing a cup of coffee?  How can we allow the Internet to grow without depleting the World's energy resources?  Learn the answers to these questions and gain insights into the design of energy efficient networking solutions.

The Paris Agreement, which brings nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change, has been at the forefront of recent news. There are many reasons why this agreement, with a goal of reducing emissions in accordance with the best available science, would be important to the engineering profession. Practitioners and students of communications engineering can help achieve this goal by understanding the role that communications and data centers play in reducing emissions, and how to design these centers in a sustainable fashion. 

The "Designing the Green Internet" on-demand course, available through IEEE ComSoc Training for a limited time, can help you to:

  • gain a better understanding of the environmental impact of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and the Internet;
  • learn more about the typical breakdown of power consumption of an Internet Service Provider;
  • understand different strategies to minimize power consumption and improve energy efficiency for cellular networks / 5G and with femto cells/ Wi-Fi; and
  • consider strategies for green cloud computing.
