The University of California, San Diego, is building a new high-speed network intended to enable the rapid movement of "big data" across campus in the areas of genomic sequencing, climate science, electron microscopy, oceanography, and physics.

The project, supported by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation and called Prism@UCSD, will include fiber paths of 10 gigabit/s, 40 gigabit/s, 80 gigabit/s, and 120 gigabit/s between various facilities on the UCSD campus.
