Multi-Terabit Submarine Cables… Too Big to Fail?

Submarine networks became critical infrastructure long ago.

A subsea cable fault that interrupts 120 Gb/s traffic is a bad thing. But a fault that interrupts tens of terabits of traffic is quite another.

Given that submarine cables can now carry many terabits of traffic each and every second, the sheer capacities of these cables raises the stakes in the event of a cable fault.

Watch TeleGeography’s Alan Mauldin, and Ciena’s Brian Lavallée as they discuss key current market dynamics in the APAC subsea region. They’ll also cover what organizations can do to mitigate the damage when the inevitable cable fault occurs.

Specific topics include:

  • Market dynamics and new cable installations in the APAC subsea region
  • Why resiliency is KEY in this part of the world
  • Proactive measures to mitigate network faults before they occur
  • Reactive measures to mitigate network faults after they occur

Watch now to get the ‘bottom line’ on the bottom of the ocean and protect your subsea network.
