eVLBI 2005
eVLBI is the process of using high speed networks to connect radio telescopes separated by large distances (100-1000s of km) instead of the traditional method of recording onto magnetic tape and shipping the recorded data to a central correlator. The ATNF, in collaboration with Curtin University, the University of Tasmania, and Swinburne University of Technology have upgraded the LBA for eVLBI usage.
