Drastically Improving Submarine Cable Capacity Using Space-Division Multiplexing

Retrieved on: 
Thursday, March 3, 2022

One of the biggest challenges in designing next-generation submarine cables is how to increase data capacity without increasing the cable's size.

Key Points: 
  • One of the biggest challenges in designing next-generation submarine cables is how to increase data capacity without increasing the cable's size.
  • The team achieved this record on the transatlantic cable Dunant and employed a nascent technology called space-division multiplexing (SDM).
  • "However, reducing the power on individual fiber allows one to introduce additional fiber in the submarine cable, which can thereby increase the total capacity of the cable."
  • The Dunant cable achieved a capacity of over 300 Tbps, which approaches or exceeds the limits of traditional cables.
