"Aqua Comms Announces Completion of Its Next-Generation Subsea Cable System"
TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company and an industry pioneer in undersea communications technology, dedicated three vessels to the surface-lay, burial and post-lay inspection of the AEConnect subsea cable, including the cable ships Reliance, Decisive and Responder, with the former executing the final splice. The AEConnect system is designed to provide the most secure transatlantic cable system in existence. On both the U.S. and European sides, the cable transverses the minimum length of shallow water along the continental shelf, while additional armouring and deeper burial was obtained. The cable also avoids major fishing grounds and shipping anchorage areas that are known to expose subsea cables to damage. In addition to its highly secure routing, AEConnect delivers one of the lowest latency crossings of the Atlantic.
