Why should submarine cable operators care about adding packet networking to their networks?
As legacy time division multiplexing (TDM) services decline in popularity, they’re being replaced by packet-based services over most terrestrial networks.
Subsequently, the subsea cable networks that interconnect these network islands must be able to handle the packet traffic.
On Wednesday, April 26 at 11 a.m. ET we'll be discussing this in a webinar with our friends at Ciena. We'll cover how packet-based services have taken over terrestrial networks and are critical to the future submarine networks.
We'll also provide an overview of submarine network bandwidth demands, as well as who is responsible for it. Register below to join the conversation.
