UK JANET Network Scales Towards 400Gbps

A £30 million overhaul of the UK’s higher education computing network JANET has been completed.

Dubbed JANET 6, the project has been managed by the higher education IT consortium Jisc. It has 10 times the capacity of the current system and aims to satisfy the demand of UK universities and scientific institutions until 2022.

The network will be at the cutting edge of UK research, particularly as academia is relying on more data-intensive research and high-performance computing.
