Power-efficient Electronic Burst Switching for Large File Transactions

Abstract

Much of the growth in bandwidth demand and power consumption in today’s Internet is driven by the transport of large media files. This work presents a power-efficient overlay network specifically designed using electronic burst switching for these large files. The two approaches are presented in which electronic bursts or media frames (MF) containing >1Mb are routed in a manner similar to UDP or concatenated into periodic semi-transparent chains and routed using a two-way reservation protocol. Utilization, blocking, delay and buffer size are compared to UDP/IP by means of simulation. Both approaches dramatically reduce header-related power consumption. Concatenation also reduces significantly the amount of buffer space required. A representative router design is evaluated showing a potential energy saving of roughly 80% relative to standard IP routers.
