SCinet to “Blow the Doors off the Network” at SC17

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

SC17 exhibitors are invited to participate in two “blow the doors off the network” events next week to demonstrate the power of SCinet, the high-capacity network built to support the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC conference.

Exhibitors with 100 GB connections to their booths are invited to blast peak traffic to and from the exhibit hall floor to illustrate the power of SCinet connectivity within the Colorado Convention Center and to other sites around the world. The events are scheduled 10-11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13, and 12-1 p.m. Thursday Nov. 16.

Attendees and exhibitors can see the peak traffic in real time during the events using the SCinet Total Traffic Dashboard.

Last year, exhibitors set a new record, pushing more than 1.2 Terabits per second of traffic over the show floor at SC16. SCinet’s Network Research Exhibition team, which coordinates the “blow the doors off the network event,” challenges exhibitors to surpass that record during SC17.

Volunteers from academia, government and industry work together to design and deliver the SCinet infrastructure. Industry vendors and carriers donate millions of dollars in equipment and services needed to build and support the local and wide area networks. Planning begins more than a year in advance of each SC conference and culminates in a high-intensity installation in the days leading up to the conference.
