Verizon Suppliers Must Meet New Energy Efficiency Standards

verizon_logo.jpgVerizon has established its own energy-consumption standards and an associated measurement for new telecommunications-related equipment that its suppliers will have to meet. The standards will be applied to certain broadband, video, data-center, network and customer-premises equipment purchased after Jan. 1, 2009.The target provided to the manufacturers of such equipment is 20 percent greater efficiency than today’s gear.

“This is similar to a consumer buying appliances according to the standardized Energy Star efficiency levels,” said Mark Wegleitner, senior vice president-corporate network and technology. “However, in most cases, an Energy Star-type rating system did not exist for the equipment we buy, so we set up our own standards and measurement process to create an effective program.

Verizon established the Telecommunications Equipment Energy Efficiency Ratings based on formulas that test the consumption of equipment in various operating conditions and settings. Test data are entered into formulas developed for each type of equipment, which will indicate whether or not they achieve the target rating.

Equipment to be tested and rated includes optical and video transport systems, switches and routers, DSLAM high-speed internet equipment and optical line termination gear, as well as switching power systems, data center servers and power adapters that operate customer equipment.

  1. This is similar to a consumer buying appliances according to the standardized Energy Star efficiency levels,” said Mark Wegleitner, senior vice president-corporate network and technology.

  2. Every business is running on the basis of the quality of their product and if they are not giving good quality it is difficult to survive. Good quality supplies are needed to manufacture a good product.
