Webinar | Data Center Interconnect Goes Undersea

Date: Tuesday, July 2
Time: 11am ET

The majority of new submarine capacity upgrades and new cables announced and deployed is to address voracious growth in data flowing between large data centers via submerged information superhighways. There’s simply no networking technology that comes close to optical networks in terms of scalability, reliability, and economies of scale. This means, that as an industry, we must continue to rapidly innovate submarine optical networking technology today—and well into the future.
