Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a list of timeline of submarine cable industry from the year 1720 to 2012. Submarine fiber optic cables are the foundation of the world's telecommunications systems. Telecommunications represent only part of the value of modern submarine cables, and submarine cables are increasingly being used for other purposes. International submarine power cables are growing in importance. In a 2009 survey, the International Cable Protection Committee (ICPC) identified 193 ocean observation sites and areas worldwide, including at least 34 that plan to or are currently using submarine cables for data transmission and power in the world's oceans.

Keywords: data transmission; submarine cable industry; telecommunications
