Scientists at Cern achieved a nerve-wracking IT update in February when they successfully established a super-fast data link between the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland and data centers in The Netherlands.

This link operates at speeds up to 800 gigabits per second (Gbps), significantly faster than average home broadband.

The upgrade aims to enhance access to LHC experiment results, which generate immense data volumes.

Despite recent breakthroughs like Japan’s record-breaking 22.9 petabits per second (Pbps) transmission, future applications for such high-speed data remain speculative but promising.
