Webcast: Submarine Network Update

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Time:  1:00 PM New York, 6:00 PM London

The recently published report, “Threats to Undersea Cable Communications”* states:

  • 97% of global data traffic flows through submarine fiber cables, satellites carry only 3%
  • The majority of disruptions are caused by accidents (fishing, dredging) and natural events (sharks, earthquakes)
  • When these massive links fail (like the recent Asia-Pacific Gateway incident), entire regions can be affected

Learn more about submarine network expansion and care, in our new webinar, Submarine Network Update, with Lightwave on May 23rd at 1:00 PM Eastern Time.

There are many challenges involved in building and maintaining these vital, but complex, networks. Lightwave Editorial Director, Stephen Hardy will lead the discussion with VIAVI senior product line manager, Gregory Lietaert.

Stephen explains, “The submarine network continues to grow. This webinar examines the reasons for the upswing in deployments as well as the new technologies that undersea network operators have at their disposal.”
