Protecting Telecommunication Assets
97% of global communications are transported through fiber optic submarine cables that can be disrupted through marine vessel incidents. Telephone conversations, web and data access, emails and television all rely on these cables.
Whether buried under the seabed or lying on the bottom, they are at risk of damage.
Damage from commercial fishing vessels and ships accidentally anchoring within cable zones are the types of events Guardian:protect is designed to prevent.
Areas of Protection
Fiber Optic Cables – Near Shore
Protect near shore telecommunications cables from damage by commercial fishing vessels and ship anchor strikes.
Deeper Fiber Optic Cables
Fishing and commercial ships that operate further from the shore are potential threats to cables. Protect them when coverage range allows.
