Subsea cables carry 99 percent of the world’s internet traffic, providing high-speed connectivity vital for global economies. With over 400 subsea fiber optic cables on the ocean floor, the global data transmission scheme is intricate, to say the least.
Cable landings are dependent on the type of methodology used to install them. Currently, landings between seaward-lying cables and shoreward cable distributions involve subcontractors—the “middle-person”—solicited by cable distribution companies and international cable landing consortiums. This setup means a tedious process of funneling through several channels, which limits the efficiency and increases the cost of building a cable system.
So, how do you beat the system to achieve efficient, cost-effective builds?
