The submarine networking industry is getting ever closer to the Shannon’s limit, the theoretical maximum capacity that can be reliably transported over a submarine cable. Fortunately, innovative new submarine cable designs will allow operators to double the maximum amount of capacity transported over these new cables and change how this available bandwidth is partitioned and sold.


Join Michael Bisaha of TeleGeography and Brian Lavallée of Ciena for an interactive webinar that examines the pricing trends on key APAC subsea routes, and how these trends are influencing new cable builds. This session will also discuss new technology options for submarine cable operators requiring massive amounts of future capacity and a better ROI.

Specific topics for discussion include:

  • A review of 10G and 100G wavelength pricing, how cable build and upgrade activity impacts their relationship, and the implications for new cable projects
  • How exploiting the available L-Band will double the maximum capacity of new cables
  • How Spectrum Sharing can change the way operators monetize new cables via new services


Register today to learn how to outsmart Claude Shannon and maximize cable capacity and how it’s sold for highly differentiated services while enjoying greatly increased economies of scale.
