Juniper Networks has been chosen by Brookhaven National Laboratory to provide routers for a computing infrastructure that is intended to help the facility manage scientific research data.
The U.S. Energy Department-funded lab selected Juniper’s MX2000 Universal Edge Router platform to support BNL’s network architecture Science DMZ, Juniper said Tuesday.
George Holland, Juniper vice president for federal strategy and business development, said the routing technology is built with 100-gigabit Ethernet network interface.
Science DMZ works to process big data from nuclear, particle physics, nanomaterials and photon science experiments aimed at helping researchers understand climate change, ecosystems and sustainable energy.
BNL also intends to use the platform to address equipment upgrade, configuration and security requirements
for scientific applications, Juniper says.
