Paper Abstract

A recent expansion of Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) forced an entire division, some 400 employees, to move to new off-site facilities approximately three miles from the main lab campus. This division is highly dependent upon computing and networking facilities at the lab that were not to be duplicated at the new facility. FDDI was chosen as the primary connection between the new facility and the lab. The distance is beyond the range of multimode fiber, so single mode fiber with appropriate adapters was utilized for the connection. Since the facility was new construction, fiber as well as copper was pulled to each office for future expansion.
