Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 9500 Sets Energy Efficiency

Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) has met energy efficiency standards under the Telecommunications Energy Efficiency Ratio (TEER) metric released by ATIS.

The TEER standard provides a comprehensive methodology for measuring and reporting energy consumption as well as quantifying a network component's ratio of work performed to energy consumed.

"Today's announcement fulfills a pledge we announced just two months ago to ensure the FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP met the standards defined by the TEER metric," said Bill Erickson, senior vice president of planning and development at Fujitsu Network Communications. "With the testing process complete we once again prove our dedication to producing communications technologies that not only are the most advanced in terms of capability, but also environmental responsibility."

  • Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 4500 MSPP has also met the TEER energy efficiency standards.
