Work is underway to provide automated end-host bootstrapping inside the ETHZ network. The network configuration is disseminated using DHCP, DNS or mDNS. See the draft documentation for more details. When completed, this work will allow anyone in the organization to join the SCION network effortlessly.
As SCION is actively used by ETH Zurich researchers, there are opportunities to link hosts to already established SCION ASes directly via the internal network. Reach out to the Network Security group in case this is of interest to you. For more information or help to connect to the SCION network, contact your IT support or the ITS Data Networks team.
The PSI is connected to the SCION production network and has high bandwidth links to CSCS. There are active use cases in the areas of open data access and data archive transmission.
The WSL institute is connected to the SCION production network. In the scope of the GeoVITe project a proof of concept using SCION for the data transfer was implemented.
If you like to use the network for your own use case, reach out to the Computer and IT Services team or the Research Programs GIS team for further pointers.
The EPFL is connected to the SCION production network. Bandwidth and latency tests have been conducted successfully. Potential use cases are in discussion.
If you would like to employ the network for your own use case, contact the EPFL IT Infrastructure and Operations team.
The EMPA and EAWAG institutes are linked up to the SCION production network. Bandwidth and latency tests have been conducted successfully. A use case in the form of data transmission between EMPA and ETHZ running on the network is in progress.
The CSCS is fully connected to the SCION production network. Bandwidth and latency tests have been completed successfully. There is an use case for data archival with the PSI in progress.
If you would like to employ the network for your own purposes, contact the Network Engineering team at CSCS (Chris Gamboni).
All sites have redundant SCION IP Gateways deployed and have a redundant SCION connectivity in place to SWITCH.
In principle all sites that announce at public IP range for their SIG can be reached via SCION from any IP application provided those IP ranges are routed through the local SIG.
Native SCION connectivity is possible from all hosts in subnets that can reach the SCION infrastructure deployed at the site and no coordination is required for the local addressing.
For some institutions, the web traffic for the website www.ethz.ch is routed over SCION.
