GreenTouch Member Bell Labs Develops Interactive Application to Highlight the Current Energy Consumption of ICT Networks and the Internet

April 2014

A member of GreenTouch, Bell Labs, has developed a new application that network operators and others can use to explore how the use of latest technologies can dramatically reduce energy consumption, costs and the carbon footprint of network.

The easy-to-use, web-based app, called G.W.A.T.T.  (Global ‘What if’ Analyzer of NeTwork Energy ConsumpTion), forecasts trends in energy consumption and efficiency based on a wide variety of traffic growth scenarios and technology evolution choices. The application was developed as part of Alcatel-Lucent’s commitment to dramatically reducing the energy consumption and operational costs of information and communications technology in the face of dramatic growth in data traffic and associated energy use impacts.

The application has been chosen as part of a competition for the the Sustainable Energy Europe Award 2014 in the “communicating” category.
