CERN Peers Into the Origins of the Universe

What’s the universe made of? How does it work? Answering the big questions about the universe is the mission of CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). With its powerful Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN is advancing the boundaries of human knowledge through breakthrough research in fundamental physics.

"Juniper is programmable and has a very good API. Because all of our Juniper devices run Junos, it facilitates our task of supporting different models, including the QFX10000 and EX9200 switches."
Stefan Stancu Network and Software Engineer, CERN

Business Challenge

CERN needs to prepare for the third run of Large Hadron Collider experiments, which will produce unprecedented volumes of data. CERN’s IT team has 1.5 years to build a network that supports the expansion of our knowledge of fundamental physics. They chose Juniper Networks for the technical network that supports the LHC operations and experiments as well as its data center and backbone.
