Submarine Cable Workshop - Long Live Submarine Cables!

Submarine cables are critical infrastructure for the modern world. Today, submarine cables carry over 97% of intercontinental data traffic, providing a web of comprehensive connectivity, reliability and redundancy. But is this sufficient to meet the ongoing needs of customers and users? PTC’15 will examine cable protection and regulatory development, the latest developments in system design and upgrade, and focus on issues critical to the ongoing success of the Global Submarine Cable industry.

Regional Roundup:

Review and update submarine cable developments over the last twelve months around the globe.  Consider what’s new on the legal and regulatory scene – and take a peek into what’s happening in the world of Cable Protection, Marine Support and Operations!
