Paper Abstract

I am particularly pleased to have this opportunity to address a group of experts assembled to discuss a subject that has been vital to the technology which has been my principal concern for more than two decades. Had it not been for considerable earlier work in the field of reliability it is likely that many of the advances in international telecommunications technology could not have been brought to market with affordable risks and I might have been engaged all these years in building railroads and bridges, my secret fervor, instead of building submarine cables and operating international circuits.
