With a rich heritage of development and manufacturing dating back to 1842,
SubCom's legacy of building communications systems today extends over
three centuries. From its early beginning in the manufacture of the first undersea
telegraph cable, our Newington, New Hampshire facility has evolved into a modern-day
producer of some of the world's most advanced undersea fiber optic cable and repeater
telecommunications systems installed around the globe by a fleet of world-class cable
SubCom manufactures both Wet Plant (cable, repeaters, and
branching units) and Dry Plant (transmission, powering, and monitoring equipment)
in the United States. SubCom's talented employees and management team including
it's research and development laboratories, manufacturing facilities, ships,
and depots have produced over 490,000 kilometers of undersea cable in over 100 undersea fiber optic systems
that are serving worldwide communications needs.
That is enough cable to circle the earth over 12 times at the equator.
SubCom has been integrally involved in the manufacturing of
transmission equipment (dry plant) since the inception of the undersea fiber optic
industry. Currently SubCom manufactures its most powerful and
reliable generation of equipment in Newington, New Hampshire.

The quantity of current generation equipment manufactured is the technological
equivalent of transmitting over 200 full-length DVDs simultaneously in 1 second.
Both of the SubCom's facilities are ISO 9001:2008 Certified.
