Submarine Networks Europe Day 2 @ 15:15

Workshop 2: Averting the capacity crunch - Demystifying how design constraints will challenge design capacity growth assumptions

For decades, there has been the assumption that due to technological optimisations, cable systems will be able to perform comfortably beyond original design parameters.  Those days are changing.  This workshop will discuss the extent to which the previous assumptions about the expansion of System Design Capacity will be challenged by physical design constraints (e.g. Shannon), how developing error correction methods will get us ever closer to those limits, and look beyond the previous design paradigm to the evolving system design strategies that will be needed to fulfil ever growing market demand for submarine cable capacity.
