Era of submarine cables
1st laid b/w England and France (Aug. 1850)
1852, linked London to Paris for 1st time
TAT-1 1st transatlantic telephone cable Scotland & Newfoundland in (Sep 1956)
Frequency division multiplexing
Wavelength division methods
Installation & Repair
Cable installation should be well planned to minimized problems.
Specialized ships using differential global positioning system(DGPS) carry out installation.
Remote operated vehicle(ROV) suitable for deep sea oceans operations.
Having speed of 15km/hr.
Most of the damage due to fishing & ship anchor.
Repair of cable in remote area is expensive
The International Cable Protection Committee. (ICPC)
Safeguarding against human and natural hazards.
formulating new treaties to protect cable.
Co- operation with fishing,oil&gas industries.
Providing relevant information to cable industries to maintain necessary standard.
Committee funds project and implimentation & programmes which are beneficial for the protection of cables.

Importance of submarine cable
As of 2006, overseas satellite links accounted for only 1 percent of international traffic, while the remainder was carried by undersea cable.
The reliability of submarine cables is high, especially, when multiple paths are available in the event of a cable break.
Also, the total carrying capacity of submarine cables is in the terabits per second while satellites typically offer only megabits per second
Submarine cable increases the performance in efficient and effective way in terms of speed , connection and fast access.
As a result of these cables' cost and usefulness they are highly valued not only by the corporations building and operating them for profit, but also by national governments.
