As the Internet continues to expand at a rate of more 1 million new users each day, the volume of data moving across global borders is also surging, facilitated by the growth of undersea cable networks running along coastlines and traversing waters between continents. Cable owner-operators are struggling to keep pace with demand when relying on traditional stick-built Cable Landing Stations. This is a formidable challenge as new or expanding subsea cable systems are developed to bring connectivity to emerging markets throughout Africa, the Asia-Pacific, and South America.

Modular cable landing stations are the solution.

The robust durability and physical resiliency of MCLS are especially critical where new subsea cable projects will bring connectivity to underserved regions with specific hazards, both natural and man-made. The Asia-Pacific is vulnerable to earthquakes and typhoons. Countries in South America regularly face extreme rainfall and floods. And some countries in Africa, while making impressive strides in economic growth, still suffer from political instability that can make infrastructure more at risk for sabotage.
