VHGw Demo on Green-Touch Final Meeting

GreenTouch was founded five years ago with the ambitious goal to improve energy efficiency of communications and data networks by a factor of 1,000.

Avalon was invited to give one of the 15 demonstration of key technology to reduce power consumption. The VHGW (Virtual Home Gateway) demonstration gives a proof of concept and focuses on the main challenges related to the virtualization of home gateways through dense service aggregation and precise energy management.
