High-performance data transmission

Several entities in Switzerland make use of the large-scale data processing facilities at CSCS. SCION will support these efforts by providing high-speed, large-scale data transmission.

Secure communication of sensitive data

Hospitals and other healthcare providers require a secure network to exchange highly sensitive information such as Electronic Patient Dossiers (EPD).

High availability for critical infrastructures

Command-and-control systems for critical infrastructure require highly reliable communication access. Typically, such access is achieved through leased lines and dedicated networks.

Network platform

Our network platform enables new research in computer networks, network security, and networked applications.
