Webinar: Side-Stepping Shannon’s Limit With SDM Cables

Even as coherent modem technology continues to innovate, the amount of data that can be carried over today’s networks shows no signs of slowing. 

Despite all this modem magic, we can’t ignore the laws of physics. We’re quickly approaching the Shannon Limit–the maximum information-carrying capacity of a submarine cable optical fiber pair.

What new alternatives are on the horizon to side-step this inevitability? 

This Month the Cable Market is Booming with Big Tech, Setting Internet Speed Records

Wow—a lot of submarine cable news this month.

We'll keep the fanfare brief. Keep scrolling to read these stories, as well as a Popular Science post about a new internet speed record, Bloomberg's profile on big tech in telecom, and the best SD-WAN conversation you'll hear all week.  

This is What Our 2019 Submarine Cable Map Shows Us About Content Provider Cables

Last month we welcomed our 2019 Submarine Cable Map into the world. This new edition is all about the building boom. 

Our 2019 infographics single out the economics of new cables, investors, bandwidth demand, and—of course—a closer look at how content providers are getting involved.

Introducing the WAN Manager Digest, Our New Membership for Enterprise Professionals

We've written about the cloud, the rise of SD-WAN, and networking pricing trends. And our new WAN Manager Survey is a treasure trove of analysis about the challenges faced by modern networking professionals.

Great news. Today we're launching the WAN Manager DigestThis exclusive subscription for enterprise professionals bundles our most popular WAN resources into one easy online membership.

Survey Says: SD-WAN is Growing. Our New WAN Manager Survey Has All the Details.

We wanted to understand how modern WAN Managers were solving today's biggest challenges. We were curious to learn about preferences in network design, sourcing, SD-WAN adoption—all of it.

So we asked them.

Is the Data Center Shifting from the Hub to the Edge?

There's been plenty of talk about the vital importance of edge as it relates to new types of network configurations. We're anticipating plenty of new applications coming down the pike, from 5G to all things AI.

This was on Jon Hjembo's mind as he explored TeleGeography's take on the edge during our annual telecom workshop last month.

You're Going to be Reading More About Managed SD-WAN

While independent SD-WAN vendors make their mark, traditional telecom service providers are rolling out their own managed SD-WAN offerings.

Yes, some have developed their own SD-WAN technology, but most carriers have partnered with an SD-WAN vendor to provide a managed SD-WAN option.

The (Google) Data Centers are Coming

As another month of 2019 comes to a close, we're looking back at the telecom headlines that caught our attention in February. 

Our top pick is about Google's big plans for 2019—$13 billion worth of plans, to be exact. Take a look at the Lightwave article below to see what we're talking about.

We've also got 5G news, the latest on Huawei, and some Irish internet history. A little something for everyone this month—enjoy.

Where We're Going, We Don't Need Roads: Going Back to the Future With Submarine Cables

What would Doc Brown do? This might be a weird question to ponder at a TeleGeography telecom workshop. But here we are.

During this year's annual telecom rundown at PTC, Research Director Alan Mauldin took the audience time hopping through bandwidth demand drivers, interregional routing changes, cable landings, cable investments, and future cable requirements. 

Nothing We Love More Than a New Submarine Cable Map

There is little that the TeleGeography team loves more than a new map.

So it makes sense, dear reader, that our valentine to you would be map-themed. In that spirit, we're thrilled to unveil our 2019 submarine cable map.
