Beamline network system at SPring-8 consists of three LANs, a BL-LAN for beamline component control, a BL-USER-LAN for beamline experimental users and an OA-LAN for the public site. These three LANs are interconnected by firewall system. Since the network traffic and the number of beamlines have increased, we upgraded the Fast Ethernet backbone to Gigabit Ethernet. We also introduced the Virtual LAN (IEEE802.1Q) technology for secure and flexible network. In this paper, we discuss interoperability of multi vendor equipment and a future plan to build firewall system with hardware load balancer.
