Data from the LHC accelerator will continue to be transmitted over the CESNET network

The CERN International Research Laboratory has launched a new phase of data loading at the world’s largest accelerator, the LHC. Some of the vast amount of data produced by experiments at the LHC will continue to be processed through the CESNET optical science network during the new phase. Experiments at the LHC already deliver tens of petabytes per year. The data are processed in hundreds of computing centres distributed around the world. One of these is the CZ Tier-2 centre, centred at the Institute of Physics of the CAS. More in our new report.
