Submarine cables remain critical infrastructure for the modern world. Today, submarine cables carry over 98% of intercontinental data traffic, providing a web of comprehensive connectivity, reliability and redundancy. But the connectivity needs and technology of our world continues to change – our industry is critical to support and drive such global development. PTC’16 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.
The Changing Global Cable Map, What’s Next?
The changing global mesh, building the story of huge volumes of demand with OTTs, older cables reaching a critical 25-year mark within the planning horizon for new cables, technology approaching the Shannon limit! Does this result in somewhat longer build-cycle than we’ve seen in previous up-periods of the market? How are we going to handle all this and build the network of the future?
