Our Story



Carrying more than 95% of voice and data traffic around the world, the role of the undersea network has evolved from transatlantic telegraphs transmission in the 18th century to mission critical infrastructure supporting today’s global economy.


But as the world becomes increasingly connected, demand for low latency, greater capacity and more flexible networks continues to escalate. To meet this challenge, the industry needs to continually anticipate, innovate and collaborate to survive and thrive in an age of exploding bandwidth. Agility, security, scale and sound planning will be the key traits of success as the world shifts towards an on-demand, digital economy.


This is where we come in. Welcome to Submarine Networks World.

As the key annual gathering for decision makers in the subsea communications value chain, we offer a dedicated platform for the community to exchange knowledge, present the latest cable projects and develop new strategies and partnerships that will ultimately go towards moving the industry forward.


In 2018, expect over 600 industry leaders from more than 300 organisations worldwide to gather once again in Singapore – a global hub of international connectivity – and get ready for a time for debate, networking and inspiration. With new players, new bandwidth-hungry consumers and new challenges on the horizon, the stage is set for the next phase of the industry’s evolution.


As we continue to change the way business is done in the global submarine networks arena, we look forward to creating new partnerships and enhancing existing relationships.
