IP-Enabled Energy Distribution: Using Smart Utilities to Drive Eco-Efficiencies

By Susan J. CampbellWhile a priority focus on environmentally friendly initiatives began some years ago, it wasn't until the concept of "going green" emerged that companies and consumers alike began examining ways to drive system implementations that would deliver sustainable...

Smart Buildings: The Time is Right

By Susan J. CampbellNow that the lingo is in place, it no longer seems weird to apply adjectives such as "smart" and "intuitive" to inanimate objects. The previous generation would have likely laughed at the thought of calling a building...

Alcatel-Lucent Increases its Research Capabilities in Dublin

To further expand its research capabilities out of Dublin, Bell Labs has announced it is that it is expanding the scope of its reserach there, which, in turn, will create more than 70 new high-tech jobs over the next several years.

Driving Global Eco-Sustainability through ICT Innovation

But, just as reducing the environmental impact of technology will not happen overnight, the discussion around how to best achieve such goals and who should lead the charge is not a one-time conversation. As such, in the January issue, editor-in-chief Ruth Killeen has put together another series of articles to further explore how the ICT sector can drive eco-sustainability not only within its own markets but, ultimately, on a much broader scale across global technology markets.

The Green Touch Initiative from Bell Labs: A New Shade of Green IT

Quite simply, today's networks are 10,000 times less energy efficient than their theoretical minimum, meaning that if networks were built from a purely energy conservation perspective, we could run today's networks for three years using the power required to run them for one day currently - and that's already acknowledging there needs to be some balance between performance and energy efficiency in order to meet user demands.

Transforming ICT for Sustainable Telecom Applications and Services

In fact, Bell Labs is set to announce a major new initiative on January 11, 2010, which it says has the potential to drive a fundamental transformation in network technology, resulting in a significant reduction of the ICT carbon footprint.

The Eco-benefits of Green IT for the Dynamic Enterprise

Ultimately, there are a number of ways any business can leverage green IT to increase its business operations while reducing its environmental impact - from effective planning strategies to more efficient infrastructure to the business process enabled by IP communications. All of these are central to not only an eco-sustainability strategy today, but to the evolution to a more dynamic enterprise environment.

A Focus on Eco-Sustainability from Alcatel-Lucent

What was once considered merely a trendy concept has now taken on a significant role in the business landscape, with the majority of business executives confirming that eco-sustainability is not only important, but is, in fact, a key consideration when making communications technology investments.

Using communications to reduce climate change impact

At its Bell Labs facilities, and through its work with the CTVR, Alcatel-Lucent is looking to drive R&D efforts that will bring such energy efficient technologies to the next generation communications environment, helping reduce the carbon emissions from telecom equipment, which now stands at about two percent of the global carbon emissions, but is set to grow significantly in the coming years without such efforts from Alcatel-Lucent and the CTVR.

How can the Telecom sector use applications and services to enable other industries and consumers reduce their impact on the environment?

It's clear that businesses are looking to become more environmentally responsible - though largely because of the cost savings that are inherent to "going green." Regardless, the telecom sector, thanks to the proliferation of IP networking solutions and eco-friendly technologies, are in a position to play a major role in driving greenhouse gas reduction and energy conservation in the global business environment.

Alcatel-Lucent Turns Focus to Green IT, Launches Eco-Sustainability Site

To supports its global eco-sustainability campaign, Alcatel-Lucent has recently launched its new Eco-sustainability Web site, which details its corporate mission to promote environmentally aware communications technology across the globe.

Green IT - Increase Eco-Sustainability in a Converged Communications Environment

By deploying the latest Green strategies, including energy-efficient hardware, but also leveraging technology to hold virtual meetings and reduce paper documents - all of which also increase efficiency in a collaborative environment - the business world, and the telecom space, in particular, has the ability to promote eco-friendliness globally.

How to Select Energy Efficient Ethernet Devices

Rising awareness of the need for sustainability is prompting enterprises to seek out IT suppliers whose offerings are safe, energy and material efficient, designed for recyclability and supported by end-of-life recycling programs.

Building a Dynamic Enterprise and Increasing Operational Sustainability Through Green IT

To help enterprises achieve their Green IT goals, Alcatel-Lucent builds and develops its communications equipment in support of and in compliance with a number of environmental initiatives, including RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), and electrical emissions, as well as the IEEE's goals towards shaping a more energy efficient communications environment.
