Data Center Interconnect Goes Undersea: Addressing Voracious Submarine Bandwidth Growth

The majority of new submarine capacity upgrades and cable deployments are designed to address the voracious growth in data flowing between large data centers via submerged information superhighways.

There is simply no networking technology that comes close to optical networks in terms of scalability, reliability, and economies of scale. This means, that as an industry, we must continue to rapidly innovate upon submarine optical networking technology today, and well into the future.

Key Trends in an Evolving Global Bandwidth Sector

What does the future hold for the global bandwidth market? The two most predictable trends are persistent demand growth and price erosion.

Beyond that, operators will have to navigate major uncertainties in continuing to move forward in an evolving sector. Here are a few of the key trends, among many, that will affect the long-haul capacity market in the coming years.
