|Abstract:||Today's growth in the demand for access bandwidth is driven by the success of the Video-on-Demand (VoD) bandwidth-consuming service. At the current pace at which network operators increase the end users' access bandwidth, and with the current network infrastructure, a large amount of video traffic is expected to flood the core/metro segments of the network in the near future, with the consequent risk of congestion and network disruption. There is a growing body of research studying the migration of content towards the users. Further, the current trend towards the integration of metro and access segments of the network makes it possible to deploy Metro Servers (MSes) that may serve video content directly from the novel integrated metro/access segment to keep the VoD traffic as local as possible. This paper investigates a potential risk of this solution, which is the increase in the overall network energy consumption. First, we identify a detailed power model for network equipment and MSes, accounting for fixed and load-proportional contributions. Then, we define a novel strategy for controlling whether to switch MSes and network interfaces on and off so as to strike a balance between the energy consumption for content transport through the network and the energy consumption for processing and storage in the MSes. By means of simulations and taking into account real values for the equipment power consumption, we show that our strategy is effective in providing the least energy consumption for any given traffic load.|
