Submarine Telecom Cables

Submarine cables for telecommunication networks have been commercially available since the early 19th century. The increasing complexity of today’s data transmission requirements (platform-to-platform, platform-to-subsea control system and platform-to-shore), challenging technologies like “free-floating” platforms or sub-sea exploration and the need for higher levels of system reliability have resulted in the development of new telecommunication system solutions for the offshore industry.

 

Fiber optic submarine networks can be easily adjusted to continuously changing business environments and can be incorporated into future engineering concepts. Armored and non-armored cables carry power, signals, communications and fiber optic applications.
