New York, NY, December 13, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) recently held its second annual IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications (GreenCom) with participants attending the fully-virtual, three-day event from Australia, Canada, China, Italy, France, Korea, Singapore, India, United Kingdom, United States, Qatar and Somalia. This included the presentations of numerous leading international experts in energy-efficient communications and green technologies, who highlighted the latest networking, energy management, smart grid and green communications solutions specifically-designed to reduce energy consumption and global greenhouse gas emissions.
Webcast internationally and then published at IEEE Xplore, IEEE GreenCom’12 officially launched with the keynote of Jean-Yves Le Boudec of the Computer Communications and Applications Laboratory 2 at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland and his address on “Stochastic Analysis of Real and Virtual Energy Storage in the Smart Grid.” This included recommendations for “more intelligent future grids” that maintain constant levels of stored energy through the combined use of advanced wind and data forecasting techniques, hydro pumps and the accumulation of large backlogs.
Later, IEEE GreenCom’12 initiated its technical program with the first of seven sessions dedicated to the advance of smart grid sustainability, networking and green device technologies. During this effort, representatives from France, Italy, Canada and Germany engaged in discussions ranging from the energy-efficient design and deploy of wireless-optical broadband access networks and distributed antenna systems to the “Power-Aware Design of Protected IP-over-WDM Networks with Sleep-mode Devices.”
On Thursday, the online symposium resumed with a full day of technical sessions and industrial business presentations. Ken Christensen of the Computer Science and Engineering Department of the University of South Florida led the forum with his keynote titled “Green Networks: Substituting, Scheduling, and Consolidating to Save Energy,” which concentrated on ICT energy savings worldwide. In his remarks, Christensen cited the growing use of ICT and consumer electronics that now constitute 15 percent of all household energy consumption. As a result, he recommended several methods for reducing billions of dollars of energy costs by 2030. This included expanding sleep and idle times through hybrid server architectures during peak hours, eliminating the time spent on problems that have already been resolved and consolidating networking and scheduling resources to minimize cycle and operational costs.
Another highlight was the “Industry Discussion Session” held with operators and manufacturers from leading organizations such as Telecom Italia, PCN Technology and Huawei Technologies. According to the dais, by 2015 more than 15 trillion sensors will link the physical and the digital worlds with the majority of ICT energy usage “shifting toward the home and everything smart.” Subsequently, the session’s panel experts implored the optimization of equipment, networks and services through the holistic adoption of standardized practices that maximize smart standby states, incorporate energy-aware traffic engineering and integrate IP-enabled edge devices into commercial and industrial networks connected to the cloud.
On Friday, Dr. Zhisheng Niu of Tsinghua University and the Tsinghua National Lab for Information Science and Technology opened the conference’s final day by “Characterizing Energy-Delay Tradeoffs in GREEN Communications.” This “Invited Talk” approached the greening of communication networks through the implementation of network architectures and resources characterized by tradeoffs between energy consumption and base station service delays utilizing sleep mode operations. Modeled as an M/G/1 vacation queue with setup and close-down times, the systems highlighted base stations designed with inherent sleep control policies that not only save energy, but ensure quality of service.
Following sessions on cellular and heterogeneous networking and devices, Dietrich Zeller of Alcatel-Lucent Deutschland AG and Bell Labs Germany then delivered his keynote on “Green Wireless Access – where we are, where we need to go.” According to Zeller, the world is in the midst of a “mobile data tsunami” that “increases global IP traffic by 11 terrabytes” and includes the activation of more than 50,000 new smart phones every hour. As a result, the current expansion of energy consumption will soon become unsustainable without the design and use of new green technologies. In his lecture, Zeller outlined the recent initiatives of the EARTH project and GreenTouch, which are actively working with industry to advocate the use of energy-efficient network components designed with sleep modes that reduce power usage by 55 percent and sustainable mobile communications that include separate signaling and data transmissions.
Afterwards, the IEEE GreenCom’12 agenda concluded with the conference’s final technical session dedicated to wireless networks and devices. Covered in the forum was the latest research into the use of energy-efficient mobile communications in assisted living applications, green wireless networking with distributed beamforming and “FlexibleIP (FIP): IPv6 Stack for Experimental Work on Low-Power Wireless Networks.”
As for next year, IEEE GreenCom’13 is currently scheduled for Fall 2013.

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
