CERN HIPPI Lab in 1994
The HIPPI Lab is CERN's facility to give engineers and physicists a change
to get familiar with the HIPPI technology. It is used to test commercial
available equipment and of CERN developed new equipment. Often the architecture
of this experimental network is adapted to the requirements of ongoing
tests. The figure should as such be seen as the base architecture. The
HIPPI Lab is open for users from outside CERN in a limited way.
