SUBMARINE COMMUNICATIONS : IT HAS BEEN TOUGH

1. Ever wondered how the internet and communications right from telgraph days has been working across the globe?Everi one knows the technology behind these terms...but ever wondered how the same has been estabilished.I will not dig deep...the pictures below will make it amply clear...one pic shows the layout of submarine wires in the year 1901 and the other shows the OFC layout in the year 2005.......it would have taken amazing human effort.....salutes to the manpower that had been behind all the tough work.....HATS OFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!


2. Wanna get some light on the cost aspects? Cables with 10Gbps bandwidth were laid at a cost of $27000 per KM...thats right...per KM.....now do the calculations for the approx length.......
