The REDIGO (an Italian acronym for Readout at 10 Gbits/s) project at INFN National Laboratory of Legnaro (LNL) involved use of 10 Gigabit Ethernet commercial networking devices and protocols to assist with physics experiments and optimize performance of data transmission links for a Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Using Mellanox technology, REDIGO and LNL conducted four experiments for particle and high energy physics. They used ConnectX-2 EN with RoCE adapters to optimize performance and satisfy the electronic requirements of the REDIGO project proposal.
