Energy Consumption in Data Centres and the Telecommunications Network
Tuesday, 28th November 2017
This event is fully booked or has passed.
This MEMBERS ONLY event incorporates a sandwich lunch, the TelSoc's Annual General Meeting and a lecture by Rod Tucker - Laureate Emeritus Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne.
The AGM will commence promptly at 12pm and needs 10% of current financial members (click-here to join now) in attendance for a meeting quorum. If you can't attend please nominate your proxy (eg. a fellow member or the president / chair of the meeting). Also, if you wish to nominate to become a TelSoc board member use the board nomination form. The list of 2017 Board nominations is on the TelSoc website.

About Rod Tucker's presentation:
Data centre architects and network engineers are making great strides in improving the energy efficiency of the hardware and software that underpins the Internet. However, rapid increases in the volume of data processed in data centres and distributed around the globe have largely negated these gains in energy efficiency. The telecommunications sector today ranks among one of the most energy-hungry industries.
In this talk, Rod will present a tally of energy consumption in the global telecommunications network and its associated data centres. I will speculate on trends into the 2020s and provide a high-level overview of some current research efforts aimed at stabilizing or even reducing the energy consumption of the network.
