We discuss how to save energy in IP-over-WDM networks, presenting the vision of TREND, the FP7 NoE, and the saving that can be obtained with an adaptive routing solution that puts network interfaces of various granularities to sleep in periods of low traffic. Results refer to two operator networks, considering power and traffic forecasts for 2020.
