Cable operators can significantly and immediately impact their bottom lines by reducing data center power needs and increasing energy efficiency, according to a presentation at the Smart Energy Management Initiative (SEMI) forum held by the SCTE (www.scte.org).

At the day-long event at Time Warner Cable facilities in Herndon, VA, IBM (www.ibm.com) chief energy management engineer Todd Rosedahl explained how server-based advanced energy-management technologies can reduce power consumption and maximize system performance per watt.

The IBM presentation was one of a dozen sessions during the conference. Others focused on photovoltaic powering, the activities of the SCTE Sustainability Management Subcommittee, line power reduction, power planning strategy, deep fiber, CableLabs' (www.cablelabs.com) Smart Grid, Comcast Data Center, controlling hub site performance, and fleet management.
