JANET, the U.K.'s education and research network, provides a high-speed infrastructure to connect all further and higher-education institutions and research councils and U.K. schools. SuperJANET, the network core, provides fast, resilient, always-available and secure access to all JANET organisations to enable them to communicate effectively, with the necessary bandwidth to support heavy data flow. SuperJANET5 is the latest version of this backbone and replaces SuperJANET4, which has been operational since March 2001.
Tim Marshall, chief executive, UKERNA, commented: "JANET is essentially the infrastructure that will help the U.K. stay at the forefront of global research and development. From primary schools in Preston to particle physics research at Rutherford, JANET has to provide a unifying network communications infrastructure that can support these users' diverse needs."
