Z-axis Technology Takes Location Data to New Heights

It’s our first telecom reading list of the summer, and the headlines are coming in hot.

First up—Z-axis support for 911 calls.

Scroll on down to read about this critical development for public safety, the ghost of Sprint’s 5G network, new Ukrainian voice intel, and more.

Zeroing in on the Trans-Atlantic Submarine Corridor

Ah, the great Atlantic.

It's the world's second-largest body of water and the most heavily trafficked route in terms of submarine cable capacity.

It also happens to be TeleGeography VP of Research Tim Stronge's favorite ocean.

Tim told us as much during a recent Ciena webinar, where he gave a live presentation all about the Trans-Atlantic Submarine Corridor.

How Enterprises Are Implementing NaaS (And Leaving MPLS)

While NaaS and the middle mile are still fairly new concepts, they're not new to the WAN Manager Podcast.

In episodes past, you've seen—or rather, heard—us shine a spotlight on the framework, concept, market players, and products available.

So let's look at things from another perspective.

Ukraine’s Inbound Voice Traffic Is Surging. Here’s How We Know.

You already know that Ukrainians are taking to platforms like Twitter, Telegram, and TikTok to share the sights and sounds of Russia’s invasion.

But here’s a new development: in just one month, carriers have clocked a sevenfold increase in international voice traffic to Ukraine.

How Can Submarine Networks Manage Surging Demand?

Earlier this year, TeleGeography VP of Research Tim Stronge gave a very fashionable presentation on the submarine cable buildout boom.

Tim's presentation zeroed in on bandwidth demand—or more specifically, what's driving it? Now it’s time to focus on where innovations are happening the fastest: the Atlantic.

OnJune 2 at 11:00 a.m. ET, Tim will meet with experts from Ciena and Lumen for a live discussion on how submarine networks can scale to manage this surging demand.

Another Reason To Love Submarine Cables

If you've seen our famous Submarine Cable Map, you can probably guess that the TeleGeography team geeks out on submarine cable knowledge.

And although there's a lot to know, we still get excited when cables come up in the news. 

So it’s no surprise that our latest list of telecom reading recs starts off with a story about submarine cables—and their potential to detect earthquakes. 

Two Truths and a Lie: Submarine Cable Edition

In honor of Subsea World 2022 happening next month, let's play two truths and a lie: submarine cable edition.

Settle In for Some Submarine Cable Trivia

Have you been playing the secret cable trivia hosted on our interactive submarine cable map?

If you haven’t, look for the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the map. Submit the correct answer and you’ll be entered to win a free submarine cable map in our monthly drawing.

In February, we released the answers to our first three questions. Now it’s time to reveal a new batch of answers.

One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Mapkind

No, that wasn’t a typo. NASA is teaming up with lidar company Aeva to 3D map the moon—a tricky feat without GPS.

If you’re a map lover like us, this ought to grab your attention.

The prototype is small enough for an astronaut to wear as a backpack and able to map its surroundings in real time. 

Can a Park Bench Boost 5G?

As India’s long-awaited 5G deployment draws nearer, a new pilot program may prompt you to look at ordinary objects—like lampposts, mailboxes, and park benches—much differently.

This program will equip street furniture with small cell networks across four different locations: Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation, Kandla Port in Gujarat, and Bhopal city.
