GLORIAD Research Network Deploys Force10

The Global Ring Network for Advanced Application Development (GLORIAD, a collaborative research network between Russia, China, the U.S., the Netherlands, Korea, Canada and the five Nordic countries, has deployed Force10 Networks' TeraScale E-Series switch/routers as it transitions from Gigabit to 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

The Force10 TeraScale E300 is deployed by the Joint Institute for Computational Science to provide dedicated Gigabit Ethernet services to U.S. scientists. Additionally, the TeraScale E300 is deployed in Chicago-based StarLight, one of the largest optical network exchanges for national and international research and education networks in the world, to interconnect scientists on the GLORIAD network worldwide.

The Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI), South Korea's national supercomputer center, also deployed the Force10 TeraScale E-Series in its grid network.
