SubCom’s laboratories, with heritage based in the renowned Bell Laboratories, have been leading the undersea telecommunications industry for nearly half a century.
The SubCom labs continue to invest in and foster technological leadership, averaging one granted patent per week.
The staff of experienced and highly knowledgeable engineers and scientists use long-length transmission test beds
and proven proprietary computer simulation tools to explore and qualify new optical path designs and transmission formats.
SubCom uses a long-length ocean simulator to support the development of advanced undersea cable technology.
This Undersea Network Modeling Tool is able to model systems more than 12,000 km in length, providing an accurate
representation of the physics affecting optical signal propagation. The tool is verified against many laboratory test
bed experiments, field trials, and full capacity demonstrations on installed systems.
