8/28/2018, 10:08 AM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

Dublin, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "US Submarine Cables - a Review and Forecast" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com'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.
