The SCTE Standards program is developing universal energy standards and operational practices that can support new cable services and make the delivery of existing services more efficient.
SCTE 210, 211, 212 and 213 are metrics standards that are critical to achieving the power cost and consumption reduction goals of the Energy 2020 program.
Operators should use these foundational tools to establish energy baselines and measure changes in power use from the rack to the system level.
These initial metrics standards play a key role in gauging the impact of future energy standards and operational practices.
Creating this first wave of standards is only the beginning for Energy 2020. The real objective is for the entire industry to join the effort by adopting these standards and making energy as important as price and performance in the evaluation and purchase of new equipment.
