With over 500,000 km of submarine networks deployed worldwide and its 150 years of experience, Alcatel-Lucent leads the industry in terms of capacity and installed base. Its research facilities (Bell Laboratories) lead in the continuous development of new technologies enabling substantial network capacity increases to assist operators in meeting their end-users’ service demands over time.
From network upgrades to new deployments, from regional to transcontinental networks, Alcatel-Lucent provides every part of a global transmission network, complemented by a very comprehensive portfolio for marine services through its six cable ships.
Submarine cable networks are critical to address the enormous demands that the convergence of services have on data networks as they cost effectively provide the adequate bandwidth and connectivity end-users need to maximize their service experience, as well as bringing broadband everywhere by providing direct access to the global communications network to under-served or not served countries.
Alcatel-Lucent has always played a leading role in the creation of the planetary information ring and has further strengthened its successful track record over the past few years. It has been involved in the construction of a submarine loop around the African continent, the connection of remote islands and territories as the bulk of the traffic has progressively moved to remote servers, new transoceanic projects to protect communications by providing cable route diversity, significant enhancement to connectivity from India and the Middle East to the rest of the World, and upgrades to existing networks. Additionally, new emerging segments such as offshore applications for oil & gas and scientific seafloor observatories are being addressed.
