In 2008, High Energy Physicists Created Record for Network Data Transfer

110 Gbps Sustained Rates Among Storage Systems Over Wide Area Networks, and 200 Gbps Metro Data Rates on Next Generation Optical Links, Set New Standards for Networks and Computing Clusters

114 Gbps WAN Tests 100G Test With Ciena

Austin, Texas - Building on seven years of record-breaking developments, an international team of physicists, computer scientists, and network engineers led by the California Institute of Technology, the University of Michigan, Polytehnica University in Romania, Fermilab, Brookhaven National Laboratory, School of Electrical Engineering and computer Science in Pakistan, CERN, and partners from Brazil (Rio de Janeiro State University, UERJ, and two of the State Universities of S Paulo, USP and UNESP) and Korea (Kyungpook National University, KISTI) joined forces to set new records for sustained data transfer among storage systems during the SuperComputing 2008 (SC08) conference.

This work was made possible by the strong support of the US Department of Energy Office of Science and the National Science Foundation.
