ABSTRACT
In telecommunications networks, distributed power management across heterogeneous hardware requires a standardized representation of each system's capabilities to decouple distributed high-level algorithms from hardware specifics. The Green Abstraction Layer (GAL) provides this interface between high-level algorithms and a lower level representing the hardware and physical resources that directly exert energy management and actions in a network.
INDEX TERMS
