The MeerKAT telescope uses optical fibre cable as the backbone for the transport of high bandwidth data and precise timing signals within the telescope as well as connecting the telescope to the external networks and the internet. The MeerKAT telescope currently has close to 300 km of optical fibre installed in complex networks. Optical fibre test equipment is needed during installation, commissioning and on-going maintenance of the MeerKAT fibre network. This tender entails the once-off supply of optical fibre test equipment.
