SUBMARINE TELECOMS INDUSTRY REPORT – SECTION 5.2: SHORE-END ACTIVITY

5.2.1 Current Shore-End Activity

The amount of shore-end installations by region for the period 2015-2019 correlates closely to the number of systems per region over the period. The EMEA, AustralAsia and Americas regions are characterized by numerous systems that connect 3 or more landing points. The Indian Ocean Pan-East Asian, Transatlantic and Transpacific are typically characterized by systems taking more direct routes between fewer landing points. (Figure 54)

5.2.2 Future Shore-End Activity

The amount of shore-end installations by region for the period 2020-2022 diverges compared to the number of systems per region over the period. Systems in AustralAsia will continue with historical trends, providing numerous shore-end installation opportunities. New Transpacific systems will, on average, connect more landing points than normally observed. New systems in the Americas will, on average, connect fewer. However, the overall distribution will stay about the same as compared to the last five years. (Figure 55)
