Researchers at the University of Melbourne Center for Energy-Efficient Telecommunications (CEET) are starting a new research program to reduce the energy consumption of Internet-connected devices by developing new hardware and cloud-based solutions.
As more connected devices are used across the world through the Internet of Things, there is a need to address their energy demands, according to the researchers. The new research agenda aims to establish Melbourne as a hub for creating a sustainable-networked planet. Effective collaboration with skilled specialists will be an important factor in solving future network efficiency issues, according to Bell Labs researcher Thierry Klein.
"Our work with CEET is a critical part of the Bell Labs sustainability research agenda and this new research program will play a big part in how we address challenges for the global telecommunications industry in the future," Klein says.
