Juniper Networks, Ixia launch energy efficiency metric

Juniper Networks and Ixia have announced the formation of the Energy Consumption Rating (ECR) Initiative - a framework for measuring the energy efficiency of network and telecom devices.

Juniper Networks, Ixia and Lawrence Berkeley National Labs collaborated to develop a vendor-neutral energy efficiency metric.
 
The ECR metric creates a common energy denominator between different network and telecom systems operating within a single class. The ECR methodology defines the procedures and conditions for measurements and calculations, and can be readily implemented with industry-standard test equipment.
