Exascale science translates to big data. In the case of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the data is not only immense, it is also globally distributed. Fermilab is host to the LHC Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment's US Tier-1 Center. It must deal with both scaling and wide-area distribution challenges in processing its CMS data. This poster will describe the ongoing network-related R&D activities at Fermilab as a mosaic of efforts that combine to facilitate big data processing and movement.
