OPTMIZATION AND PROTECTION OF SUBSEA INFRASTRUCTURE
The world’s ability to communicate and share information relies upon a sophisticated web of undersea cables. Supporting over 99% of all trans-oceanic data, these cables are the lifeblood of international commerce, communications, and the internet itself.
Submarine cables are valuable assets. However, deciding exactly where to place them is no simple task. Protecting and monitoring their health and performance can be even more complicated.
TEOCO has developed a suite of solutions and services that protect and optimize the valuable submarine cable assets of some of the world’s largest hyperscale data centers and communication providers.
PRIDE is a service offering by TEOCO that maximizes the lifespan of each submarine cable once it is placed and reduces repair costs by continuously monitoring for activities that could cause damage.
Hundreds of undersea cable breaks occur every year, often due to fishing activities or ship anchors dragging across the sea floor. When this happens, entire countries can be left without connectivity. Repairs can take weeks and cost millions of dollars, and that doesn’t include lost revenue or the downstream impact to others due to loss of service.
Risk assessment and prevention are key for the successful avoidance of costly subsea cable repairs and service disruptions. Using advanced heuristics and AI/ML algorithms, PRIDE continuously monitors and assesses risk factors so that damage can be reduced, and likely perpetrators can be quickly identified and alerted, averting damage before it happens.
