Brookhaven National Laboratory Upgrades Network Core with Juniper

DENVER, Colo., Nov. 19 — Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, today announced that Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) has upgraded its network core with the Juniper Networks MX2000 Series 3D Universal Edge Routers. Enhancing its backbone routing infrastructure with the MX Series will help the Lab fully leverage its high-performance computing capabilities to advance the study of nuclear and particle physics, support photon sciences and nanomaterials research, and enable cross-disciplinary research to understand the relationship between climate change, sustainable energy and Earth’s ecosystems.

Brookhaven National Laboratory, a multipurpose research institution funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, applies world-class expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science — from the birth of the universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. Implementing a Science DMZ — a scalable network design model for optimizing scientific data transfers — near the laboratory’s local network perimeter will help optimize equipment, configuration and security policies for high-performance scientific applications.

With support for hundreds of 10GbE interfaces and dozens of 100GbE interfaces, the MX2000 Series router will help enable BNL’s network to carry extremely large data flows efficiently, as many flows on BNL’s network exceed 100 GB. This new capability will be crucial for BNL as it provides computing services for the experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at BNL, the U.S.-based collaborators in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and the collaborators in the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope project.

The MX2000 Series will be showcased at the 2013 Supercomputing Conference; please visit Juniper Networks at booth #2532.

“Juniper has partnered with Brookhaven National Laboratory to continue its long tradition of providing cutting edge solutions and architectures for the next generation, high-performance networks required by leaders in the U.S. and global scientific and research community. Juniper and Brookhaven teamed to construct and deliver a world class Science DMZ that provides agile and reliable access to backbone networks with a 100GB on-ramp. Both the partnership and the platform are models for future progress,” said George F. Holland, vice president of federal strategy and business development, Juniper Networks.
