European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), a standards body that produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), announced it has organized a Specialist Task Force to respond to a number of critical energy management issues in Cable Access Networks.

This group, lead by Coppervale Enterprises, will focus efforts on creating Global Key Performance Indicators (Global KPI’s) that enable the energy efficiency of cable operator’s infrastructures to be monitored. These Global KPI’s for energy management address the combined objectives of reduced energy consumption, increased task efficiency, re-use of energy and the inclusion of renewable, or “green”, energy sources wherever possible.

ETSI anticipates completion of standards document by October 31, and publication date of November 28.
