We often say that we'll be taking a "deep dive" into an issue at the beginning of our WAN Manager Podcasts. Today we almost mean that literally, as Greg welcomes TeleGeography Research Director Alan Mauldin to talk about submarine cables.

Whether you're joining us from the vendor side or enterprise side, you might want to know why submarine cables—usually thought of as a wholesale telecom issue—are relevant to the corporate WAN.

Alan walks us through the considerations and discusses enterprises who are interested in building out their own backbones, acting almost like a mini-internal telecom. He also expands on how pricing for wholesale transport services leads to the trends we see for enterprise transport.
