Handbook

image of Marinized Terrestrial Cables

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.

A repair method is only needed if this is the maintenance philosophy adopted. In this case, repairs are carried out at convenience either in the factory or in situ. Only in situ repair methods are covered in this chapter, as factory repairs are covered by factory procedures.
