Omantel, a global player in the integrated telecommunications market, announced that it is a key supporter of the Subsea Optical Fiber Communications 2019 International Summer School, presented by Google and the OSA Foundation. It runs until the 10th August 2019 at Holiday Centre Huhmari, a lakeside resort in Polvijärvi, Finland.

Intended for early stage researchers, engineers and Ph.D. or master's degree students looking for a new field of opportunity in technology, the event involves multi-disciplinary courses covering subsea optical fibre communication. Candidates will go through an in-depth process of building a modern global communication network, with a focus on submarine system design, submarine powering, cable technology, planning, marine operations and maintenance.

Speakers from Google, Facebook, Subcom, Alcatel Submarine Networks, NEC and more will help attendees to understand, innovate and prepare to solve challenges in the subsea cable industry.

Ninety-nine percent of international data traffic travels through the 1.2 million kilometres of subsea optical fiber used in subsea cables today. This data traffic is set to double in the next three years. Omantel plays a vital role in the subsea cable market with its growing investments in more than 20 international subsea cables that serve areas covering more than 5 billion people. It supports global transformation with a unique global subsea cable footprint that delivers ultra-low latency connectivity to help its partners and customers to reach further.
