[Webinar] Open for Business – Real-World Business Benefits of Open Submarine Cables


By Brianna BoudreauDec 21, 2016


TeleGeography’s latest research tells a story about soaring submarine network bandwidth and eroding prices for transoceanic bandwidth services. 

These trends indicate that future submarine cable builds must be reliable, high-capacity, and cost-effective to be commercially viable.

The openness movement has been broadly adopted and implemented across the compute, storage, and software industries. Now, its sights are set on the network used to connect users to content, and content to content.

Much of the new submarine bandwidth being turned up is to interconnect data centers. The openness movement long ago adopted by ICPs, however, will soon be upon the submarine network industry, as well.

Join TeleGeography’s Brianna Boudreau and Ciena’s Brian Lavallée for an overview of the current submarine cable market, as well as a discussion of how the openness movement will affect the submarine cable market in years to come.

Learn how open submarine cables:

  • Enable greater choice for submarine cables
  • Allow for best-in-breed submarine cable networks to be implemented on the RFS date
  • Allow submarine cable operators to leverage the rapid SLTE innovation cycle
