The Green Touch™ Initiative is based on groundbreaking research Bell Labs conducted to answer the question: What is the minimum amount of energy required to power communications networks? The Bell Labs study concluded that todays ICT networks have the potential to be four orders of magnitude (10,000 times) more efficient then they are today. This conclusion is based on a fundamental analysis of the underlying components of ICT networks and technologies (optical, wireless, processing, routing, architecture, etc.) and their known physical limits - using theorems such as Shannons Law, a formula used to predict the useful capacity of any communications channel. In this video, Gee Rittenhouse, head of Research at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs talks about this research and Shannon's Law.
