The Fastest Network Connecting the Fastest Computers


SCinet LogoSCinet is the SC Conference’s dedicated high-capacity network infrastructure, designed and built by volunteer experts from industry, academia, and government. Planning begins more than a year in advance of each SC conference and culminates in a high-intensity installation that, for the duration of the conference, is the fastest and most powerful network in the world.

Since its inception in 1991, SCinet has been pushing the boundaries of networking technologies and innovations through various workshops, demos, and activities, in addition to providing internet connectivity for conference attendees.

SCinet supports the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC Conference and enables exhibitors to demonstrate the advanced computing capabilities of their solutions and services, whether in large-scale or one-on-one demonstrations.
