Access Point

Access Point is the router in a basement in Guelph (ON), Canada. It provides a variety of services, including this website you are looking at. It is a simple consumer grade router running a linux based operating system. To extend its capabilities, it has a few bells and whistles connected to it.

What is all involved? One cable modem, a wireless router, and some large hard disk drives. This makes a very green solution to host a variety of services and keeping the family served with an intra-net (local netwok services) and the internet.

The average power usage is estimated to be <25 Watt (on average), whereof more than half the power consumption is a necessity in order to have an internet connection at home (modem + basic router). Putting this into perspective: An average desktop computer, which could host the same services hosted here, consumes twenty times more power (at approximately 250 Watt) than the additional components added to the mandatory modem + router for hosting all services!
