Conference Theme

The theme for SubOptic 2013 was ‘From Ocean to Cloud’ which covered not only the traditional topics that our regular conference attendees look forward to, but also new areas such as the impact mobile data generated by the smart phones and tablets have had on our networks, to how value from your investment, operator and service delivery and much more could be achieved.

The seven topic areas below chosen by the SubOptic 2013 Programme Committee, were based upon the experience from previous events. Papers for oral and poster presentation in these topic areas were presented based upon the submissions made.

1. The Market Place

2. Project Development and Implementation

3. Marine Services and Operations

4. Network Architecture and Design

5. Equipment and Component Technologies

6. Network Operations and Carrier Services

7. Special Markets
