Paper Abstract

To match the bandwidth requirements of our fast-growing communication world, submarine networks have to provide ever greater transmission capacity. Thus, almost 2 Tbit/s will soon be the capacity available in submarine networks. A high level of availability is achieved owing to a very reliable submarine cable and to powerful network protection mechanisms.
