Market challenges

Submarine Fiber Cables

Capacity requirements on the rise 

SFS control room w230Globally, the transmission of sound, TV and internet traffic is placing increasing demands on capacity.

Wherever people are in the world, there is now an expectation of full coverage and access to data transmission capacity, both offshore and in areas that previously lacked broadband connections. More cable connections therefore need to be installed to meet these requirements. 

Need for high-quatlity communication solutions 

The offshore industry's need for high-quality communications solutions is on the rise. Increasingly, control rooms are being moved onshore, from where they have to monitor and remotely operate applications on platforms, or, for example, wells, valves, cameras or other subsea equipment. Internet access requirements with broadband in cabins, camera monitoring, image transfers and work using helmet-mounted cameras are new application areas that are driving the need for high-speed transmission. 

Long distances

Connects communities, nations, islands and continents (transatlantic and over the Pacific Ocean) with fiber optic cables.
