Morning Masterclass: Financing Strategies and Building your Business Case

About Financing Strategies & Building Your Business Case Masterclass

Constructing, maintaining and upgrading cable networks is expensive. But with the growing demand for bandwidth and capacity they are more important than ever. More than any other factor, financing affects the time scale and success of a cable project. With private investors, VCs and private equity funds getting more and more involved in the industry, financing models are changing and diversifying. This masterclass will address how you stand out in a competitive market, the different ownership models and their impact on financing and how to successfully negotiate financing no matter the source.

Afternoon Masterclass 1: Ciena's Vision for Submarine Networking

Afternoon Masterclass 2: Overcoming legal and regulatory issues in cable build

About Ciena’s Vision for Submarine Networking

Learn about the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities that submarine cable operators the world over are facing. It’s no secret that submarine bandwidth growth is on the rise between continental landmasses, but what’s driving this growth now, and into the future? Will there new competition from the skies in the form of satellite networks? This session covers the ever-changing market conditions allowing you to make more informed decisions going forward

About Overcoming legal & regulatory issues in cable builds

With more cables being built and upgraded than ever before, there are new concerns with regulating and licensing the cables. Whether that be existing concerns, regarding fishing or shipping, or new emerging threats to submarine cable operation including cyber-attacks, regulatory bodies are adjusting their legal stand point accordingly. This masterclass will cover how to facilitate permitting through close cooperation, gaps in international laws governing submarine cables and a regional deep dive into 3 main regions

Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM) Cables – An Modem Perspective

SDM cables promise massive leaps in overall submarine cable capacity with a side benefit of “simpler” optical modems due to wet plant designs providing a near linear propagation environment. However, is this actually the case? This session covers what SDM cables are and how they’ll affect the innovation direction of submarine optical modems. You’ll gain a better understanding of what modem technology innovations will allow you to not only maximize capacity, but also maximize overall cost economics.

Part Two: Roundtable discussion

A regional deep dive into regional concerns
  • Asia and Pacific
  • The Americas
  • Europe

Submarine Modem Technology Updates – 500G and Beyond

Although wet plants have and will continue to innovative, once they’re deployed undersea, the innovation cycle focuses on the inland optical modems. This session covers the latest and emerging technologies available to submarine cable operators to intercept voracious bandwidth demand growth in all regions of the world. You’ll understand the business impacts of these new technologies so you’re able to choose the right technology for your specific customer needs.
16:15

Part Three: Closing Panel & Q&A

To round off the session, all the presenters will be gathered on a panel to debate and discuss the following issues: ·Facilitating permit processes through close cooperation ·What are the key success factors that other states/countries can learn from? ·Emerging threats to submarine cable operation and protection·Gaps in international law governing submarine cables from cyberattacks ·Top tips on getting your permits and complying with legal obligations in cable builds
16:30

Open Cables, What You Need to Know

We’ve been operating in a quasi-open environment when coherent-based modems were introduced into the submarine networking industry a decade ago. The benefits of opening submarine networks, by disaggregating the wet plant from optical modems, enabled rapid innovation cycles and massive capacity increases. Join us in this session to learn about the current industry status of standardizing Open Cables and what you need to know to make informed decisions
