A Letter to Our Readers:

This November marks the 15th anniversary of the formation and first publishing of the Submarine Telecoms Forum magazine.

In his first Exordium 15 years ago, Wayne Nielsen envisioned “Submarine Telecoms Forum as being a platform for discourse on submarine telecom cable and network operations where industry professionals can provide guest commentary and information on system and service provision.”

Since then, we have published over 700 articles, written by over 500 subject matter experts, in 90 issues of the magazine. Our authors and readers hail from all corners of the submarine cable industry, and beyond. Our goal has, and continues to be, to create a resource for industry minds to speak and collaborate freely on matters of importance to our niche of the telecoms industry.

Since the first issue of the magazine was published, we’ve added almost 10 individual resources including our popular wall maps, an online cable map, the quarterly almanac of cable systems, and the annual industry report, to name a few.

As our industry sits precariously on the edge of the future, we will endeavor to provide you a useful, timely and relevant resource in SubTel Forum. Echoing Wayne’s words from that first issue: “we promise you, our readers, the following: that we will provide a wide range of ideas and issues; that we will seek to incite, entertain and provoke in a positive manner.”

Our responsibility is to you, our readers, thank you for your years of continued support and patronage.

Sincerely, sig Kristian Nielsen Vice President
