Munich Science Network

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Munich Science Network ( MWN ) is operated by the Leibniz Computing Center (LRZ) and connects the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich (LMU), the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Applied Sciences Munich (HM), the Weihenstephan University of Applied Sciences Triesdorf , the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and other institutions such as student dormitories.

It enables data communication with each other and Internet access . The network backbone and many subnetworks are operated by the LRZ; local networks within institutes are mostly looked after by institute staff.

The MWN connects over 400 buildings at 60 locations with around 300 km of fiber optic cable . In the buildings, over 100,000 systems (servers, PCs, printers, etc.) are connected to more than 1,000 active network components with 1,100 km of fiber optic and 2,000 km of copper wire cables. In addition, over 2,500 wireless access points are operated in many university areas.

The Internet connection is implemented via two X-WiN connections with 2 × 10 Gbit / s each, via which more than around 1.3 Pbytes of data are transferred per month.
