HEPnet/Canada provides support for computer wide area networking in High Energy and Nuclear physics research across Canada.
This site is used to disseminate information about networking services provided by HEPnet/Canada, and about general networking issues that concern the subatomic physics community in Canada.
At the SuperComputing 2011 (SC11) conference in Seattle in November, an international team from UVic and Caltech transferred data in opposite directions at a combined world record rate of 186 gigabits per second (Gbps) in a wide-area network circuit. The 100 G circuit was established from the UVic Enterprise Data centre via BCNet and CANARIE to Seattle. HEPnet Canada staff and equip[ment participated in this demonstration.

HEPnet Canada recently completed deployment of a network of perfSonar Networking monitoring hosts to key HEP sites around the country.
