The Next Mass Extinction: Aging Submarine Cables

The rapid pace of demand growth will require staggering amounts of bandwidth in the coming years.

While many older cables built in the late 1990s and early 2000s continue to play a key role in global connectivity, their days increasingly appear to be numbered. 

TeleGeography's Alan Mauldin talked about all of this and more during Submarine Networks World in Singapore September 24-26, 2018. 

Happy Anniversary to the AC-1: A Twenty Year Retrospective at Subsea EMEA

Way back in 1998, a press release went out from Global Crossing about the first segment of their transatlantic fiber-optic cable.

"Global Crossing announced today that it has begun transmitting voice and data communication through Atlantic Crossing (AC-1)," read the release, touting the cable's state-of-the-art system. This segment will double the total capacity in service across the Atlantic Ocean! Full city-to-city connectivity! A link between Europe and the U.S.! 

Did you catch what's so interesting about that language?
