Square Kilometre Array(SKA) project

The SKA project is a global scientific and engineering project to build the world’s largest most sensitive telescope co-located in remote desert regions of southern Africa and Western Australia. When the SKA is operational, hundreds of thousands of antennas generating the hugh amount of valuable data that will increase the ability of astronomers around the world to explore the far reaches of the universe and address mysteries around dark energy, gravity and life elsewhere. Reliable fast research network connectivity is critical for processing the deluge of data that will be generated by the next-generation SKA telescope, co-located in remote Western Australia and southern Africa.
