Attendees at Submarine Networks World, taking place September 25-27 at the Suntec Convention & Exhibition Center in Singapore, will have an opportunity to see first-hand how Ciena's GeoMesh Extreme solutions can provide unprecedented capacity, reliably, and simplicity, redefining the economics of owning and operating submarine networks.

Attendees will also be able to hear Ciena insights into the latest trends, challenges and opportunities affecting submarine cable operators.

Demonstrations (Booths 9 and 10):

  • Analytics solutions that allow submarine network operators to gather massive amounts of data from a network and make smarter, data-driven decisions using machine learning and big data analytics. Analytics gives operators the ability to visualize and anticipate potential network and service disruptions before they take place, create more profitable services, and better predict capacity requirements.
  • Bandwidth-on-Demand capabilities allow submarine network operators to offer bandwidth at set levels to address changing customer needs. For example, enterprise customers can schedule increased bandwidth in anticipation of a major event or during peak demand, and then decommission the connection once the event is over.

Speaking Sessions:

  • September 26 at 9:35 SGT: Steve Alexander, Chief Technology Officer, keynote session: “The Shannon Limit, or Opportunity?” Attendees will hear how the Shannon limit is defined, its importance, and how to address the concept with technology solutions.
  • September 26 at 16:55 SGT: Bob Hadaway, Vice President of Merchant Modems, will speak on the “Evaluating the Business of an Open Network” panel.
  • September 27 at 9:20 SGT: Ian Clarke, Vice President of Global Submarine Solutions, will speak on the “New Network Topologies for a Next Generation Internet” panel.
  • Deep Dive Workshop:

September 25 from 13:00 to 17:00 SGT: Ciena will host a pre-conference workshop covering the latest topics and issues facing the submarine cable industry, including: updates on hardware and software solutions to address submarine bandwidth demands, transformation of submarine and terrestrial networks through SDN, and the benefits of the openness movement.

 

 

Deep Blue Cable has announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Scott and Chief Technology Officer, Alasdair Wilkie, will speak at the Submarine Networks World 2017 conference in Singapore.

On Tuesday, September 26, Mr. Scott will participate in the Global Cable Project Showcase as well as the Project Developer Roundtable.  On Wednesday, September 27, Mr. Wilkie will join executives from Pacific Light Data Communications, Ciena® and P.T. Telekomunikasi Indonesia International for the Keynote Network Design panel, “New Network Topologies for a Next-Gen Internet.”  Later that day, Mr. Wilkie will join executives from Aqua Comms DAC, ASEAN Cableship Pte Ltd, Facebook and Orange Marine for the Marine Operations and Maintenance panel, “Relooking at Maintenance Models to Achieve Greater Efficacy.”

The participation of Deep Blue’s executive leadership at Submarine Networks World follows the company’s announcement this past July that it had contracted with TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. Company, to build and deploy the Deep Blue subsea cable system.  The pan-Caribbean system design, which spans nearly 12,000 km with initial landing points in 12 markets throughout the region, is projected to be completed in Q4 of 2019.
