New Connectivity Enables ESnet to Support Globe-Spanning Collaborations at Ultra-High-Performance Network Speeds
Pacific Wave announced the completion of a 100-Gigabit connection for the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), the high-speed computer network serving US Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories and scientific facilities. With the completion of this new connection in Sunnyvale, CA, ESnet has upgraded its peering capabilities to research networks in 40 countries throughout the Pacific Rim and beyond.
“International exchange points such as Pacific Wave serve a critical role in the architecture of the Internet, and they are especially important in supporting large-scale scientific collaboration,” stated ESnet Division Director Greg Bell. “This new 100-Gigabit connection will improve data mobility for scientists at the cutting edge of discovery in high-energy physics, fusion energy research, climate science, and many other fields.”
ESnet provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at national laboratories, universities and other research institutions, enabling them to collaborate on some of the world’s most important scientific challenges including energy, climate science, and the origins of the universe. Funded by the DOE Office of Science, and managed and operated by the ESnet team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, ESnet provides scientists with access to unique DOE research facilities and computing resources.
