Network Driven, Packet Context Aware Power Management for Client-Server Architecture (NCAP)

Dr. Nam Sung Kim has developed a protocol to vastly improve energy savings in low to medium load server environments.

The protocol works entirely on the Network Interface Card and is easy to implement. For low and medium load environments, the protocol can save approximately 50% of the energy used by the management of "sleep" and "wake" stages. It can be applied to servers both of small and large scale.
