CEA Unveils New Standards Project on Energy Consumption

May 28, 2014

At the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Technology & Standards Forum in Seattle, CEA said that its Home Networks Committee has formed the Network Device Energy Consumption Working Group.

According to a release, the group's formation is in response to the growing need for harmonized industry standards to measure the energy consumption of network devices like modems, access points, routers, and switches.

"Energy measurement standards for small network equipment will ensure that all manufacturers are using the same testing protocols and making apples-to-apples comparisons of energy consumption," said Kevin Marez, principal systems engineer, ARRIS, and chair of the new working group. "This standard can be used by stakeholders to accurately determine the energy profiles of these ubiquitous devices."

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is the technology trade association representing the $208 billion U.S. consumer electronics industry.
