A major concern in modern explosive development of information and communication technology, especially in wired networking is to reduce of unnecessary energy consumption. It is needed because of expected environmental impact and potential economic benefits. These issues are usually referred as “Green networking”. It is related to increase the awareness of energy consuming in routing protocols, in the devices, including the structure of the whole networking system. Here different issues will be described which is topically related and the possible impact in green networking field. Also, special attention will be monitored in the routing protocol and algorithm especially link state routing protocol which is generally used for calculating the shortest path. This research paper tries to find out a new technique or modified routing technique that will be more effective for every router in terms of energy efficiency.
