The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has deployed Juniper Networks networking solutions to increase the capacity of its data centres and technical network to adapt to increasing research requirements.

One of the world’s largest centres for scientific research, CERN has deployed Juniper Networks QFX Series switches, EX Series Ethernet Switches and is evaluating Tungsten Fabric to create a network built for extreme computing.

“After electricity, networking is the most important element for us at CERN. The physicists need the experiment data to be moved to the data center where it’s processed and sent to our partners around the world,” said Tony Cass, IT Infrastructure Group Lead, CERN

“We also have thousands of employees who need access to the research database and regularly need email and web access. So, if the network doesn’t work, CERN doesn’t work.

“Juniper has provided the network that supports the collider’s operations and experiments, as well as its data center and backbone.”

James Morgan, Vice President, Enterprise Sales, EMEA, Juniper Networks said: “Juniper is very proud to be working with CERN by putting dynamic automation and a robust network in place and supporting the organization to embark on the next wave of scientific discovery to continue helping us to understand our mysterious universe.”
