Back to Innovation Internships main page

ROADMap Systems is a high tech start up spun out of Cambridge University. The company is based in St John’s Innovation Centre and is developing next generation technology for telecom and data com applications. It is currently developing an innovative wavelength selective switch module for use in optical telecom and data centres networks.  

Summer Project

The aim of the summer project is to investigate the applications of wavelength selective switch
technology in the rapidly evolving data centre market, and to develop software to analyse the performance of networks based on these components. Through this project, the intern will gain experience in the fields of optical data communication and network design, and in computer modelling techniques. 

Requirements

  • The student should be an Engineering, Maths, Physics or Computer Scientist
  • Some experience of MatLab and programming would be advantageous
