Except when they're underseas...
Fiber seems to last forever on land (except when there are saboteurs), but undersea cables seem to be vulnerable to various kinds of damage.

Re: Except when they're underseas...
Interesting!

Would you consider investing in fiber if you had the option?

You mean.. if *I* personally had billions to spend on anything I wanted? Wow. I guess I'd probably copy Elon Musk and plan to launch hundreds of nanosats into LEO to create a wireless mesh network of broadband connectivity... that way I'd avoid having to pay for the rights of way to lay fiber.....

But if I already owned the telephone poles..

Sure, you personally have billions hidden in the sofa cushions (right?).

Re: Except when they're underseas...
I've discovered some strange and unexpected things in my sofa cushions, but... I'm guessing I don't have any gold coins or hard drives with early bitcoins in them. Even if I did, it wouldn't add up to billions anyway.

@mhh: I'd take a more conservative approach and invest in long-term, non-tech holds like Coca-Cola. That's a market that's hard to disrupt. People still put stuff in their mouths and bellies.

The demand for high-speed broadband services and hyperconnectivity has driven massive surges in network data usage like never before. Due to this trend, the networks of communications service providers (CSPs) are increasingly overburdened. Service providers need to optimize their networks to scale service delivery efficiently, while maximizing the opportunity to innovate at a rapid pace.

Learn how cloud-native containerized solutions can position CSP networks for long-term evolution and sustainable growth. Hear practical steps and flexible options for implementing a cloud-native PON solution in your network. Discover how to maximize operational resources and make way for enhanced applications, innovations and new use cases.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Microservices
  • Containerization
  • How to implement cloud-native containerized PON
  • The convergence of fiber and mobile networks
