More and more, fiber-optics go down deep.
Fiber-optics no longer are exclusively used in Metro or to interconnect high bandwidth networks on land. Long haul telecom networks are linked through fiber-optics on the ocean floors.They are also used for monitoring or transmitting video signals in underwater applications.
Evidently aggressive sea water and uncontrolled environments require robustness beyond the usual telecom and datacom conditions.
Not only salt, humidity and temperatures are challenging. Often those applications are in deep sea scenarios at extreme pressures. Those fiber-optic components are not always put inside additional shieldings which compensate the tremendous pressures. Here at CUBO we've have specialized for years on providing the nautic and deep sea industries with pressure tolerant fiber-optic components.
Over the past years we have moved the pressure tolerance deeper and deeper. Current designs permit a depth of up to 4000m (400bar) below sea level, without pressure compensation.
Let us help you planing your next project below the waterline. Either as Captain Nemo driving the Nautilus, planing your trip down the Mariana Trench or plain data transport project.
