Extreme Networks & NASA Goddard Space Flight Center To Establish 40GbE Links

Extreme Networks today announced that it is working with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) at the Super Computing 2010 (SC/10) conference in New Orleans (Nov. 15–18) in evaluating high speed, standards-based 40 GbE connectivity in support of scientific research that studies the global climate.

Some of the largest data sets in existence today are related to weather research and that data is used extensively throughout the world. The ability to rapidly share data across faster networks enables advances in global climate research.

The demonstration of high performance networking, found at NASA SC/10 booth #3839, complements an ongoing and collaborative study of global climate. The networking experiments−replicating what is also planned to be performed on site at GSFC in Maryland−enable enhanced research capabilities through dramatically improved network performance without a step-up in overall network infrastructure costs. This stride forward in price/performance is made possible through the Extreme Networks first-to-market, standards-based 40 GbE switch, the Summit® X650.
