UVic physicists achieve 100 gigabit/second transatlantic transmission

The Canadian High Energy Physics network  organization, HEPnet/Canada at the University of Victoria, under the direction  of Dr. Randall Sobie and technical leadership of Ian Gable, and their colleagues  from Caltech, under the leadership of Professor Harvey Newman, proved that data  could be transferred from Geneva to Ottawa at 94 gigabits/second. They made use of the 100 gigiabit transatlantic network (the only one in the world) between Ottawa and CERN last week.
