The ATLAS Canada computing model consists of a Tier-1 computing centre located at the TRIUMF Laboratory in Vancouver, Canada, and two distributed Tier-2 computing centres: one in Eastern Canada and one in Western Canada. Each distributed Tier-2 computing centre is made up of a group of universities. To meet the network requirements of each institution, HEPnet Canada and CANARIE (Canada's National Research Network), in collaboration with other research networks, have constructed a series of lightpaths to connect the institutions involved. TRIUMF is connected to CERN via a 10G circuit, a portion of which will be dropped at TRIUMF's Tier-1 peer SARA/NIKEF in Amsterdam. Current Canadian ATLAS Tier-2 institutions are connected to TRIUMF via 1G lightpaths, and routing between Tier-2s occurs through TRIUMF. We discuss the architecture of the ATLAS Canada network, challenges of building the network, and future plans for the network.
