oral presentation Track6: Facilities, Infrastructure, Network Track 6 Session


Stefan Nicolae Stancu (CERN)


The LHC Optical Private Network, linking CERN and the Tier1s and the LHC Open Network Environment linking these to the Tier2 community successfully supported the data transfer needs of the LHC community during Run 1 and have evolved to better serve the networking requirements of the new computing models for Run 2. We present here the current status and the key changes, notably the delivered and planned bandwidth increases, the ongoing work to better address the needs of the Asia-Pacific region, developments to improve redundancy provision and progress made for the provision of point-to-point links.
