SARAO was contracted by the international SKA Organisation to participate in a number of international design Consortiums to develop the design of the SKA Phase 1 (SKA1) telescope. SARAO participated in two consortiums amongst others to develop the power network requirements and fibre network requirements for the SKA1 MID telescope to be built in South Africa at the SKA site, vicinity Carnarvon, Northern Cape.

These two network designs, prepared by the INSA (Infrastructure South Africa) and SADT (Signal and Data Transport) Design Consortiums were approved by international SKA CDR (Critical Design Review) Committees during 2018, however the fibre network was baselined to the power network design as at November 2016 due to the continuing development within both networks.

The fibre network design for the Core networks requires to be updated to ‘overlay’ the current power network design to maximize the usage of ‘shared’ power trenches and to limit ‘stand-alone’ underground trench requirements for the fibre network.
