Submarine cables are essential for our modern lives. But what is a submarine cable? Why are they so important? What hazards do they face and how can we protect them? The International Cable Protection Committee (ICPC) has produced a short video that explores these questions and more.
To understand the efforts and technologies required to keep submarine cables operational, Alcatel-Lucent with a 150 year experience of submarine cables which includes the installation, repair and maintenance of submarine cable systems has also produced a series of short films that explains aspects of repair and installation.
