In the short period of time since SubOptic 2016, the submarine fiber industry has seen massive changes as the combined factors of data driven bandwidth and the associated explosion of data centers dislocated from the traditional telco PoPs have begun to stretch the limits of the physical infrastructure.
The conference theme represents the challenges to the industry as a result of these changes, the consequences of the shift from telephony to data and the rapid repositioning of PoPs in both a physical and global sense.
Together with an examination of the changes in our industry, the SubOptic 2019 conference program will also encompass and invite dialogue on traditional topics such as Marine Services and Operations, Legal and Regulatory issues, Network Operations and the Oil & Gas market.
SubOptic 2019 aims to update the new topics debated at SubOptic 2016 and which are now an established part of the industry, for instance data center networking, Open Systems, Disaggregation and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
More details about the topics to be covered can be found below.
