How Plume’s Adaptive WiFi conserves energy with no impact to Quality of Experience (QoE)

Even as more and more devices require WiFi connectivity to perform their basic functions, most are built with the idea that they will, at times, turn off and disconnect. Until now, home networking equipment operates in an “always-on” manner; typically they have no such feature to fluctuate based on usage and instead will continue operating at the same energy consumption level around the clock. In this whitepaper, Plume demonstrates how it is possible to intelligently manage a network to lessen the energy demands of the customer premise equipment (CPE) without impeding on the quality of experience (QoE) of the user. By learning how a home or business operates, Plume can proactively steer devices to reduce power consumption.

Plume’s efforts in the energy optimization of our networking hardware can provide real value and in this whitepaper, we delve into the following questions: 

  • What is the current balance between QoE and energy savings?

  • How can a network intelligently limit excess electricity usage?

  • What is the average energy savings and how big can the impact be at a global scale?
