The Centre for Telecommunications and Information Engineering
The Centre for Telecommunications and Information Engineering (CTIE) is recognised as a centre of excellence in telecommunications research, technical consulting and education.
It is an innovative group of highly proficient telecommunications engineers based at Monash University's Clayton campus.
The group carries out leading edge research, works collaboratively with and consults for key industry sectors, cultural institutions, organisations in health, the environment, and government, and provides professional training courses.
New facilities in Optical Communications and Applied Photonics Laboratory:
A 10x 16 Gb/s optically amplified long-haul transmission system has been donated by Siemens. Some details at Siemens TransXpress Infinity Multiwavelength Transport System
Telstra has donated significant quantities of equipment and fibre to the lab.
CTIE has been involved in the Australian government cooperative Research Centre effort since 1993. It continues with a strong record in the Australian Research Council (ARC) Grants scheme and through direct industry consultancies.
CTIE was the Applications program leader in the Australian Telecommunications Cooperative Research Centre, but research has ended in that project (Dec. 2005). Commercialisation activities are ongoing.
CTIE maintains an extensive vendor independent telecommunications network testbed and video communications and encoding facilities for its research efforts. It also has an extensive collection of robotic aircraft used in the Aerobotics activities, as well as many design and simulation facilities for research in network simulations and radio frequency communications
Please contact individual CTIE staff directly for any research or consulting enquiries.
Old CTIE website research pages are still available on this site, but are not being maintained.
