Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

In this paper, the research focus on the development of energy saving schemes with roots in sleep modes that support the evolution of greener core optical IP networks. The cornerstone of the adopted strategy is partition-lightpath schemes underpinned by the hibernation state implemented through a modification of the intelligent control plane, in particular for transparent network architectures under different scenarios. An enhanced multi-level operational hibernation mode through partition-lightpath was defined including functionality, structure considering its implementation issues. Through the use of appropriate design parameters the impact on blocking probability, wavelengths assignment, LSP connection requests, degree of node connectivity and network utilization can be minimized while also achieving energy savings. Evaluation of this scheme indicates potential reduction in power consumption from 9% up to 17% at the expense of reduced network performance.
