The researchers at CERN (the French abbreviation of European Center for Nuclear Research) operate some of the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments as they probe the fundamental structure of the particles that make up everything around us. While located in Switzerland, the activities of CERN involve physicists from all over the world. However, this participation is highly demanding as the amounts of data generated at the instruments continue to grow.
Therefore, TENET – the National Research and Education Network (NREN) of South Africa – has upped its game to improve connectivity to CERN.
