CISCO is a multinational corporation specialising in the design and manufacturing of network systems. Their collaborative relationship with ICRAR became well established while working on the MWA precursor.
The work on MWA involved developing CSP solutions scalable to SKA phase 1. Initially as a partner in the CSP pre-construction Design Package, and now as part of the LFAA verification program, ICRAR-Curtin and CISCO are active developers of software correlators for next-generation telescopes. Among other interactions, CISCO is providing the equivalent of two positions supporting ICRAR’s lead-edge activities in correlation and associated technologies.
