Mar 2003
BERKELEY, Calif., March 26 -- The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), the high-performance network funded by the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science, has just completed an upgrade to 2.5 Gb/s, with 10 Gb/s in the highest-speed portion of the network. The new 10 Gb/s circuits represent an increase of 16 times existing performance levels, or two typical generations of bandwidth upgrades.

Operated by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, ESnet is a nationwide, high-performance network supporting scientific research, connecting more than 35 DOE institutions to each other and to the Internet. The upgrade will contribute to the acceleration of basic scientific research sponsored by the DOE Office of Science, ESnet said.

Qwest Communications International provides the high-speed circuits to ESnet as fiber-based wavelength services, carrying the high-speed data over a single beam of light.
