  The ELI Beamlines facility is a Petawatt laser facility in the final construction and commissioning phase in Prague, Czech Republic. End 2017, a first experiment will be performed. In the end, four lasers will be used to control beamlines in six experimental halls. The central control system connects and controls more than 40 complex subsystems (lasers, beam transport, beamlines, experiments, facility systems, safety systems), with high demands on network, synchronisation, data acquisition, and data processing. It relies on a network based on more than 15.000 fibres, which is used for standard technology control (PowerLink over fibre and standard Ethernet), timing (WhiteRabbit) and dedicated high-throughput data acquisition. Technology control is implemented on standard industrial platforms (B&R) in combination with uTCA for more demanding applications. The data acquisition system is interconnected via Infiniband, with an option to integrate OmniPath. Most control hardware installations are completed, and many subsystems are already successfully in operation. An overview and status will be given.
