Interesting. I've googled a bit and could not get precise details. Data in
LOFAR seems to arrive at correlators using UDP packets, but I don't know if
they get time-tagged in each station or in the correlator. No mention of
fiber-delay compensation anywhere. I'll try to contact somebody from LOFAR
and see what they are doing exactly. Thanks for the lead!
