CONVINcE: Consumption Optimization in Video Networks

Project description

The idea of the CONVINcE project grew out of two observations. The first one is that the Internet's carbon footprint would exceed by 2020 those of air travel by a factor of two. The second observation is that video drives the Internet traffic: The sum of all forms of IP video will be 80% to 90% of total IP traffic in 2017. Furthermore, should people not be convinced by the necessity to reduce carbon dioxide emission, they will listen to the economic aspect of the problem: The price of electricity is increasing and will still increase in the coming years.

CONVINcE addressed the challenge of reducing the power consumption in IP-based video networks with an end-to-end approach. The power consumption characteristics are studied and optimized along the media path from the Head End, where content is encoded, to the terminals, where the content is consumed, embracing of course the CDN (Content Distribution Network) and the core access networks between them. The partners’ efforts will concentrate on architectures, hardware and software design, protocols and basic technologies in the devices. In parallel to these activities focused on optimizing the power consumption in each part of the system, the project will run transversal activities on “Software best practices & Eco-design” and “Power & QoE measurements”. The results of the project will be visible through demonstrators targeting tests of which conclusions will be made public in order to disseminate the best practices in the domain. It is also the intention of the project to push its results to standardization bodies. The business impact of the project will be the further delivery of new products and services designed from the beginning with aggressive power reduction objectives.
