Improving energy efficiency in Internet equipments is becoming an increasingly important research topic. In this paper, we discuss the lesson gained by experimenting a power management mechanism aimed at reducing the power consumption while guaranteeing the Quality of Service (QoS). To this purpose, we drive the clock frequency of an open flexible and high-performance router, the NetFPGA, according to the measured input bit rate. An evaluation of the proposed power management policy is provided.
