We’ve assembled a diverse set of expert panelists from across the globe who will share their perspectives on the challenges, mitigation options, and future outlook for the global subsea cable network in the face of today’s geopolitical challenges. While there’s been a lot of recent attention on the impact of U.S.-China relationships on TransPacific cable construction, the reality is that the submarine cable industry has coped quite effectively with similarly-sensitive economic, political, and security concerns elsewhere around the globe for many years. With the growing demand for more and more cables and increased diversity, routes which were previously impossible are now increasingly within reach. Undoubtedly, those cable owners who’ve been impacted recently by more restrictive regulations are managing to find workarounds that are compliant with new government policies. Our experts will share perspective on what’s important and why, what creates disruption and mitigation approaches, and how all this might influence the future global network. This topic will be split into two sessions – the first providing brief introductory overviews to some of the issues at play and the second a panel session of experts discussing how the industry might best manage through today’s challenges.
