Faster and Cheaper Data Transmission Through Subsea Cable Drives Growth Across Chinese and Global Industry

Subsea cable is a cable placed at the bottom of the sea for carrying telephone traffic, transmission of digital data, private data and internet. The cables are 25 millimeters in diameter and 1.4 kilogram per meter in weight. Special cable layer ships are employed to mount subsea cables. The installation process is slow and expensive. The cables laid at shallow depths of sea are buried using high pressure water jets to avoid obstructions. The life expectancy of subsea cables is 25 years from capacity and economical point of view. Spies use subsea cables to transmit and receive information about missions in an encrypted format.

Alcatel-Lucent, a leading networking company, has announced it would begin construction of Africa Coast to Europe (ACE) submarine cable’s second phase. The first phase of ACE cable system connected several countries in West Africa to Europe. This phase extends cable up to 5,000 km from South Africa to Gulf of Guinea island of Sao Tomé-et-Principe. The company is implementing 100 Gbps fiber technology and on completion of second phase, overall design capacity will be 12.8 Tbps covering distance of 17,000 km.

The need for faster and cheaper data transmission presents many opportunities in the subsea cable market. The global and Chinese subsea cable market is segmented by company, applications and country. Deploying subsea cable that meets demands of dynamic and remote environments is a challenge manufacturers need to overcome to gain stronghold of market.

Many studies have been done that present recent trends and development opportunities of subsea cables market. Recently, Prof Research Reports has added a new report titled “Global and Chinese Subsea Cable Industry, 2009-2019 Market Research Report.” The report offers insights on changing market trends across China and international subsea cable market along with an analysis of major companies.
