US Submarine Cables Market 2018 - A Review and Forecast Report -


The "US
Submarine Cables - a Review and Forecast"
report has been added
to's offering.

This report, perhaps uniquely, forecasts growth in traffic on US
submarine cables by traffic source/sink areas (Europe, Asia, and Latin
America.) Also uniquely, this report uses traffic growth forecasts, as
well as market information about the major cable users (cloud computing
and others,) to actually forecast specific future cable construction
along with likely participants.

The new submarine cables are, of course, fiber optic based and handle up
to nearly 200 Terabits per second! Theses cables connect all the
continents (except Antarctica) and most major islands. They are a
critical part of international communications, handling over 95% of all
international traffic. They make international business possible as well
as being key to many national defense efforts.

Recently there has been a decided up-tick in submarine cable
construction to meet the ever growing traffic demand. Of late, a major
driver of this traffic has been the international clientele of the
on-line powerhouses - Facebook, Google and others along with some of the
major cloud computing companies such as Amazon.

Submarine Cables outlines US international activity in this area from
humble beginnings in the 1850s to today. It describes the cables, the
landing equipment and all major components. There is a detailed
discussion of the participation of the cloud computing and social
network companies as owners and operators of submarine cables. It also
provides information on the major cables recently completed or shortly
planned for completion. In addition, it provides sketches of major
vendors for both cable and equipment.

Most importantly, this report provides detailed forecasts of expected
international traffic; new, unannounced cables likely to be required and
the routes; and suggestions as to who the owners/builders may be.
