One of the more interesting booths at SC’14 was that of the Terabit Project. At the ZIH TU-Dresden booth, I was shown a network infrastructure and applications that were in production and delivering over 1 Terabit of network throughput over 1000km (622mi). This project is focused on demonstrating terabit network capacity for research applications that required maximum high data rates to deliver data in a timely fashion for researchers without tying up the network for days or weeks. The team built the network using a combination of stringent network QoS, the application of new Software Defined Network (SDN) approaches and Network functionality Virtualized(NFV).
