SubOptic 2016: Register before March 31st to get the On-Time Rate!

Since the Preliminary Programme was issued, one new Workshop and one new Roundtable has been added to the SubOptic 2016 programme. Both these sessions promise to be absorbing and well worth attending.

The Workshop is titled: The Promise and Reality of Open Networks – To be (SLTE) or not to be? that is the question.

Organised and presented by Elaine Stafford (DRG), with panellists Mark Enright (TE SubCom), Steve Grubb (Facebook), Vincent Lemaire (ASN), Elizabeth Riviera-Hartling (Ciena), Greg Varisco (Aquacomms) and Joseph Chan (PCCW).

To buy a new cable with some fibre pairs lit, some dark, or all dark? Cable developers are asking themselves this question more frequently than in the past, yet it remains common practice to purchase the SLTE to light a new undersea network from the system supplier.

  • What are the tradeoffs?
  • The risks?
  • The rewards?

SubOptic has assembled a panel of experts who will share their ideas and experiences on the challenges of contracting, constructing and accepting open (dark) networks.

The Roundtable is titled: Markets Environment for Undersea Cables: Will the Excitement Continue?

Organised and presented by Richard Lukaj (Bank Street), with panellists including Bjarni Thorvardarson (Hibernia Networks), Brian Mass (RTI), Shota Masuda (NEC) and Erick Contag (GlobeNet).

SubOptic expects to launch the final Conference Programme at the end of March/early April 2016 and copies will be available at:
