In this talk I will be presenting two related papers that have to do with energy savings in wired networks. In the first paper I present a model that allows to estimate the energy savings of links that implement the new standards IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet, as a function of simple traffic parameters. Under this standard, the link can go to a low power mode when there is not traffic over the link. Then, in a network of (idealized) EEE links, I present algorithms to schedule and route packets in order to reduce energy consumption while maintaining the latency low.
