Behind the Headlines: Recent Submarine Network News, Explained


By Jayne MillerAug 26, 2019


This year has been—and will continue to be—a busy one in the submarine networking industry. Several new submarine cables have already been announced, deployed, or put into service.

These projects address the 40% compound annual growth rate in intercontinental bandwidth demand along our submerged information superhighways.

Submarine networks are considered critical infrastructure, and deploying new cables will improve the reliability of these global networks.

But as new projects are announced, advanced, and completed, how do we separate hype from reality? And how do we measure the impact new and announced cables are having on international bandwidth supply?

These are good questions. You can understand why we'd want to plan an extended discussion around sub cables in the news. And that's exactly what we've done!

Join TeleGeography's Tim Stronge and Ciena's Brian Lavallée for a 30-minute webinar on September 4 at 11 am ET.

Our experts will discuss: 

  • How to dissect a trial announcement by knowing how to read between the lines
  • Recent submarine cable announcements from around the world
  • Where new cables are being deployed and the needs they address

Register today to listen in and ask Tim and Brian your cable questions.

Can't attend on September 4? No problem. Register and we'll send a recording to your inbox when we're all done.
