SWITCHlan, state of the art networking since 1989
The webcam on the Jungfraujoch delivers high quality video and panoramic photos as well as automatically generated time-lapse videos. This service is brought to you by SWITCHlan as a byproduct of the fibre optic line to the High Altitude Research Station Jungfraujoch.
SWITCHlan connected this Alpine station to the Swiss education and research network in March 2010 to permit real-time data transmission. The high-bandwidth connection allows researchers to control the measurement systems directly, from any location. Further, it's possible to transfer extensive amounts of measurement data in real time in order to be processed at remote research institutes or by using cloud services all over the world.
The webcam ist located on the Sphinx (Jungfraujoch), 3571 meters (11716 feet) above sea level.
