  • The following is energy efficiency information for Small Networking Equipment (SNE) devices purchased by Verizon since January 2015. The configuration used in testing is based on the test procedures defined in the “Voluntary Agreement for Ongoing Improvement to the Energy Efficiency of Small Network Equipment.” The energy consumption for each individual SNE device may vary.
     

    The Base Type descriptions and Features descriptions are provided in separate tables below. For the features, a number following the feature indicates the quantities of that interface. For example, a feature of Fast Eth LAN (4) indicates the device has four Fast Ethernet LAN ports. If there is no number listed, then the quantity for that feature is one (1).
