Spatial Division Multiplexing as a New Way to Address Ongoing Growth
Even as the coherent modem technology continues to innovate, the amount of data that can be carried over today’s networks shows no signs of slowing down. However, despite all this coherent modem magic, we can’t ignore the laws of physics, and we’re quickly approaching the Shannon Limit—the maximum information-carrying capacity of a submarine cable optical fiber pair.
So, what new alternatives are on the horizon to side-step Shannon’s Limit?
One approach is getting a lot of attention in the industry—Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM)—a new alternative to how future submarine cables can be built that is intended to address ongoing capacity demands.
Join Tim Stronge of TeleGeography and Brian Lavallée of Ciena for this 30-minute Webinar as they discuss:
- The Submarine cable landscape—how many cables will be needed in 10-15 years?
- What is SDM and how can it be leveraged in submarine cable deployments?
- What are the technology implications of deploying SDM?
Register today to not only keep up but stay ahead of the pace of innovation that will impact your submarine cable infrastructure today and in the future.
