ANSI/SCTE 231 2019

General Test Procedures for Evaluation of Energy Efficiency Metrics and in Support of Functional Density Metrics

A series of SCTE documents are being created to provide the cable operator with standard references for determining how well a piece of access network equipment performs in terms of minimizing the power required to do its particular job. In addition, the standards provide the means to quantify the amount of useful work the equipment provides per physical space. This document supports the series of supplemental standards by providing a common set of testing procedures and methodologies to be used for evaluating the power consumption metrics defined by those standards.
