Marinized Terrestrial Cables

Handbook

The use of underwater optical cables, considered as coming under the heading of terrestrial links, has dramatically increased in recent years. This Handbook describes the characteristics, including the installation methods and testing, of a particular type of underwater cable known as marinized terrestrial cable (MTC), which, based on a conventional multiple fibre terrestrial cable core, is protected to withstand the shallow water environment and designed for specific repeaterless applications.

Hide / Show Abstract

The main purpose of a marinized terrestrial cable construction is to provide a sufficiently reliable communication link that meets the system performance requirements in an economical manner. Whilst cable designs may vary, they share generic performance capabilities in order to meet this purpose. These normally involve the following considerations.
