Chapter Summary

It also includes a list of contributors, table of multilateral conventions and cases, list of figures, images and maps, abbreviations, and a chart of maritime zones for all ocean spaces with Treaty Article references and maps of submarine cable systems by region. The submarine cable industry has flourished in the world's oceans since 1850. Progressing from telegraph and telephony to high-speed data fiber optic cables and power cables, these submarine cables are increasingly recognized as critical international infrastructure by more and more nations.
