UTMOST connected on all data fibres

19/05/15 The UTMOST project has achieved full connectivity of the 352 individual sections of the telescope (“modules”) on optical fibre to our central building, where all the incoming data are processed and analysed.

The last few fibre connections with stable data transfer were finished in mid May, 2015. The total data rate down the fibres is an impressive 563 Gbits/sec — which needs to be processed for the most part in real time by our GPU cluster.

Congratulations to Duncan Campbell-Wilson and Dave Temby for reaching this major milestone.
