Paper Abstract

This paper highlights the challenges involved when designing, manufacturing and testing ultra-long high capacity submarine telecommunication systems. We will focus on the transpacific design space and use as an example the design data and measurement results from the most advanced deployed undersea communication link - a 9000 km transpacific segment built using dispersion slope managed fiber. A discussion of recent technical advances and even longer systems, for direct, all optical, wideband connections between the United States and Asia is also included.
