National audience; This research paper proposes IEEE802.3az incorporated green algorithmic schemes on the software defined networking-based segment routing (SDN-based SR) centralized network. The proposed schemes are the green (i.e. the EAGER and CARE metrics) SDN-based SR networks with and without traffic engineering (TE) tunneling. Green metrics extend the IEEE 802.3az energy saving to the whole network, while tunneling avoids the load sharing mechanism included in the segment routing that is not convenient for energy saving purpose. The findings of emulation revealed that the energy efficiency under the EAGER-tunneling strategy is comparable to the conventional metric with TE tunneling, and the saving realized under the CARE-tunneling scheme is twofold in comparison with the LEGACY-tunneling strategy. Meanwhile, the energy saving performance achieved with all three metrics under TE non-tunneling was inferior to those with tunneling. Nonetheless, the lower end-to-end delay and lower maximum link utilization (MLU) were achievable with the non-tunneling strategy.
