Anga Cable trade fair has been the perfect arena for both business partners Rutenbeck and Homefibre to demonstrate the "green state" of their innovative POF products. Under the agenda "Red Light for a Green Home", a wattage comparison of different home networking technologies was shown.
When in idle mode the wattage of a Devolo PowerLine Adapter, a WLAN Access Point and the Homefibre product OMC100SDA was measured. The Homefibre product with 0.8 Watt came off best. The PowerLine Adapter was using 2.5 Watt and the WLAN Access Point even 5.8 Watt. If you extrapolate this for a year, you'd save with the optical network technology of Homefibre up to 22 KWh per device and year.
