March 2023 - Bangkok, Thailand

OFP Ltd is to present a HIGHLY RELIABLE FIBER OPTIC HERMETIC SOLUTIONS FOR SUBMARINE APPLICATIONS paper at the world largest submarine telecommunications conference and exhibition in March.


Abstract: To support ever growing demands of transmission data and increased bandwidth, higher numbers of transmission channels in each submarine cable are required. Also, new submarine systems installed at greater ocean depths of at least 8,000 m need to survive longer times in the event of a cut cable. This paper discusses hermetic solutions for growing numbers of fiber pairs in compact form factor with practically unlimited reliability.
