With an active area of 200 square meters and 10 million readout channels, the CMS silicon strip tracker is the largest silicon detector ever constructed. We present the latest status and results of the detector following the first LHC long shutdown and as CMS prepares for the next high-energy discovery run. Results from detector calibration and commissioning, radiation measurements and detector performance are shown.
