Why should submarine cable operators care about adding packet networking to their networks?


As legacy Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) services are taking on water in terms of popularity, they’re rapidly being replaced by packet-based services over most terrestrial networks. And subsequently, the subsea cable networks that interconnect these ‘network islands’ need to be able to handle the packet traffic.


Join TeleGeography’s Tim Stronge and Ciena’s Brian Lavallée for a discussion on the rise in popularity of packet-based services over submarine cable networks, who’s driving the bandwidth, and key applications being served. Specific points of discussion include:

  • An overview of submarine network bandwidth demands and who’s responsible for it
  • The advantages of packetizing your submarine network
  • How to packetize the venerable cable landing station


Attend this webinar to learn how packet-based services have essentially taken over terrestrial networks and are critical to the future submarine networks.
