Who and What are Influencing Change and Innovation in Global Communications?



As evidenced by the recent collaboration of Nokia and Facebook on a spectral efficiency test over America-Europe Connect (AEConnect), Aqua Comms’ transatlantic subsea cable network, future innovations in global communications will be influenced by a confluence of webscale players and content providers working together with optical technology companies and subsea/terrestrial network owner-operators to push the limits of higher capacity, greater reach and more network flexibility. This presentation will explore how subsea networks, which provide the main arteries for intercontinental communications, are certain to be an integral part of accelerating innovation in optical techniques, helping to move tests of advanced transmission technologies to real-world applications that connect cities all over the world.
