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.
