The Centre for Energy-Efficient Telecommunications (CEET) is carrying out research that aims to improve the energy efficiency of the Internet and keep the total energy of the Internet under control as the amount of data on the network increases and as the number of users expands.
CEET is a partnership between the University of Melbourne, Alcatel-Lucent and the Victorian State Government. It is an autonomous research centre within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne. Alcatel-Lucent, through its research arm Bell Labs, and the University of Melbourne share governance of the centre. [read more]
