Abstract: In 2004, UKLight was established to provide the UK’s first national switched-circuit optical network, thus enabling UK researchers to connect to the fast growing international optical network. UKLight provides participating research centres throughout the UK with the infrastructure necessary to develop optical networking and the applications that will use such networks. Several early adopter projects were already pushing for approval in order to make early demonstrations of " proof of benefit " to their fields. However, ESLEA is the first widely scoped project to exploit UKLight for a range of scientific applications, including Particle Physics, Radio Astronomy, Computational Science and e-Health.
