Power trends in communication networks are analyzed using a transaction-based model. Traffic models are developed for North America and used to evaluate the relative power trends of wireline networks and mobile networks through 2020. An ideal case for aggressive network-efficiency improvement measures is evaluated within this framework and shown to lead to roughly unchanged consumption over the next decade. Implications for future technology requirements are discussed.
