Asia’s Research Hub Expands Its Global Reach with High-Speed Connectivity
Data is changing the nature of scientific discovery. Scientists at Hong Kong’s universities are among the leaders in this new digital era of research. Their work relies on being able to access and analyze unimaginably large amounts of data, not just within Hong Kong but also with their peers in other parts of Asia, North America, and Europe. The Joint Universities Computer Centre (JUCC) built an infrastructure, powered by Juniper, to ensure the high-speed exchange of information with researchers around the world.

The open exchange helped scientists at Hong Kong’s public universities take their research to the next level. Along with being space- and energy-efficient, the new 100-Gbps infrastructure:
- Improved global research collaboration in data-intensive fields such as high-energy physics, genomics, and public health.
- Provided researchers in Hong Kong access to the top supercomputers globally.
- Paved the way for thousands of scientists to make new discoveries faster.
