The Green Abstraction Layer: A Standard Power-Management Interface for Next-Generation Network Devices
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Raffaele Bolla,Roberto Bruschi,Franco Davoli,Lorenzo Di Gregorio,Pasquale Donadio,Leonardo Fialho,Martin Collier,Alfio Lombardo,Diego Reforgiato Recupero,Tivadar Szemethy
Issue Date:March 2013
pp. 82-86
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 Lay...
 
On the Double-Faced Nature of P2P Traffic
Found in: Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing, Euromicro Conference on
By Raffaele Bolla, Marco Canini, Riccardo Rapuzzi, Michele Sciuto
Issue Date:February 2008
pp. 524-530
Over the last few years, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing applications have evolved to become a major traffic source in the Internet. The ability to quantify their impact on the network, as a consequence of both signaling and download traffic, is fundamenta...
 
Power scaling in network devices
Found in: Proceedings of the ACM CoNEXT Student Workshop (CoNEXT '10 Student Workshop)
By Alessandro Carrega, Raffaele Bolla, Roberto Bruschi
Issue Date:November 2010
pp. 1-2
The largest part of routers and switches, today deployed in production networks, has very limited energy saving capabilities, and substantially requires the same amount of energy both when working at full speed or when being idle. In order to dynamically a...
     
Introducing standby capabilities into next-generation network devices
Found in: Proceedings of the Workshop on Programmable Routers for Extensible Services of Tomorrow (PRESTO '10)
By Antonio Cianfrani, Marco Listanti, Raffaele Bolla, Roberto Bruschi
Issue Date:November 2010
pp. 1-6
In this contribution, our main objective is to introduce and to support standby modes in next-generation devices for backbone networks. Our main idea consists of periodically reconfiguring nodes and links to meet incoming traffic volumes and operational co...
     
Energy-aware performance optimization for next-generation green network equipment
Found in: Proceedings of the 2nd ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Programmable routers for extensible services of tomorrow (PRESTO '09)
By Andrea Ranieri, Franco Davoli, Raffaele Bolla, Roberto Bruschi
Issue Date:August 2009
pp. 101-104
Besides a more widespread sensitivity to ecological issues, the interest in energy-efficient network technologies springs from heavy and critical economical needs, since both energy cost and network electrical requirements show a continuous growth, with an...
     
Pc-based software routers: high performance and application service support
Found in: Proceedings of the ACM workshop on Programmable routers for extensible services of tomorrow (PRESTO '08)
By Raffaele Bolla, Roberto Bruschi
Issue Date:August 2008
pp. 107-112
Despite high potential and flexibility in developing new functionalities and mechanisms, as well as the availability of well-established networking SW, common criticism of Software Routers, based on COTS HW elements and open-source SW, is mainly focused on...
