National Center for Atmospheric Research Selects Juniper Networks Technology to Foster Global Collaboration

Juniper Networks, an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today announced it has been selected by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) to provide the networking infrastructure for a new supercomputer that will be used by researchers to predict climate patterns and assess the effects of global warming.

The new supercomputer will be installed at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC) this fall and will be fully operational in 2017. This new system will enable more accurate and actionable projections about the impact of weather and climate change and is expected to perform 5.34 quadrillion calculations per second, making it one of the top performing supercomputers in the world. Juniper Networks was selected to provide the system's networking infrastructure, allowing scientists around the world access to this critical climate and weather research tool.
