Elaine Stafford of DRG Undersea Consulting“Over the last three decades, we’ve witnessed SubOptic’s transformation from a niche, technical exchange to one that now covers all elements of the growing global submarine communications marketplace. In 1986, the conference focused on the use of fiber optics for the first time in undersea communications; now, it’s the meeting place to discuss how today’s undersea networks are evolving to support global development in countless ways.

Certainly, much has changed, but SubOptic has remained the benchmark event of this industry. We’re pleased to be a sponsor of this important, comprehensive event, especially now as the market is expanding and evolving in new and exciting ways. DRG has had the honor of growing alongside SubOptic, and we look forward to continuing to be a part of the success of this conference and our industry.”
