The infrastructure that deploys the internet is not based on satelite links, or terrestrial telecom towers. 90% of all internet traffic goes trough submarine cables.
That makes oceanic infrastructure key player - an opportunity for special purpose seasteads in data driven segments like financial services and banking - especially the question of political interference free server centers on the ocean is on the table.
The future is oceanic in many ways … some things will go oceanic to become interference free, some to follow markets and resources arround the globe, some for movement of big installations, to take advantage of the advantages of the properties of a liquid medium over “dry land”…
As the world becomes more and more ocean oriented it was predicted that the 21st centruy will see more construction activity on the ocean than on land… (Metha)
Submarine Networks World 2015 (Conference)
Submarine connectivity remains the key physical backbone of the world’s Internet, with almost 300 fibre optic cables spanning across the seabed of seven seas and seven continents.
Carrying more than 95% of voice and data traffic around the world, the time for welloiled, expansive cable systems is now. Key stakeholders will need to continually anticipate, adapt, innovate and collaborate to embrace and excel in this age of exploding bandwidth. To achieve scale and enter new markets, the subsea industry needs to strive towards developing a flexible portfolio of NexGen capabilities and technological platforms. Those who emerge successfully will no doubt be essential enablers for the global economy.
This is where we come in. Now in its 18th year, Submarine Networks World continues to be the leading annual gathering for decision makers throughout the subsea communications value chain. It is the only platform where the industry’s elite leaders gather annually to exchange knowledge, present new and upgraded cable projects,
strategise and partner.
Come and join us as we change the way business is done in the world’s submarine
