Taking Submarine Networks to the Extreme

Date and time: Wednesday, June 28, 2017; 11am ET 

Submarine bandwidth demand is doubling every two years. Are you prepared to keep up?

The impending launches of the Seabras-1 and Monet subsea cables in the Caribbean and Latin America (CALA) region are just two examples of addressing the submarine bandwidth growth explosion currently underway around the globe.

With an estimated $10 trillion* in transactions carried by the global submarine network infrastructure every day, the stakes have never been higher.

TeleGeography and Ciena have teamed up for an educational webinar about the state of the subsea network industry—with a specific focus on the growing CALA region. Anahi Rebatta of TeleGeography and Brian Lavallée of Ciena review the latest developments in the submarine cable industry ‘seascape’, and discuss new technology innovations that will help you:

  • Maintain pace with enormous annual bandwidth growth rates
  • Proactively address inevitable submarine cable faults to prevent outages that could spell disaster
  • Simplify network designs for reduced cost of ownership and increased financial stability

With over 95% of the world’s intercontinental communications traffic carried by submarine networks and the threat of network faults looming large, you can’t afford to miss this webinar.
