Abstract

Policy-Based Systems have been proposed as a flexible and robust solution for policy enforcement in different sectors of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) infrastructure. Since networking systems present high degrees of electrical energy consumption, companies that provide ICT services or network connections need to work on energy-efficient networking processes to guarantee sustainable operations. This paper presents how an energy efficiency–related business policy can be refined to network policies that consider QoS constraints, how these policies manifest themselves in the equipments, and describes research’s next steps, which involve making this refinement more automated.
