SubOptic Spotlight

SubOptic has launched its first in a series of online events under the title ‘SubOptic Spotlight’.  These ‘Spotlights’ will bring together top level executives and thought leaders from the global subsea telecommunications industry to  discuss the latest trends, news and challenges.

For our first series we address the impact of COVID-19 on the global subsea telecommunications industry and discuss the priorities, solutions and needs the industry is facing in this time of global crisis.
