Are You Maintaining Your Sub-Sea Network?

November 29, 2012 by Sarah

Under the ocean’s floor it’s much harder to protect our vital Internet infrastructure from natural enemies like Trojan “Sea Horses”! Maintaining a reliable, secure network is vital for any sub-sea organisation to deliver products such as these.

SFN joined the Atlantic Cable Maintenance and Repair Agreement (ACMA) at the start of 2012 as part of our pro-active cable operations and maintenance programme for CeltixConnect. ACMA operates one of the largest dedicated marine fleets in the world and is responsible for the maintenance and repair for over 60 of the largest sub-sea telecoms, power, oil and gas organisations in the world.

Earlier this year ACMA selected us to oversee the newly developed and upgraded ACMA website. Following on from a long honoured tradition amongst the ACMA members, SFN is delighted to have been selected from a group of prestigious sub-sea providers to spearhead the development and new direction of this vital resource.

The ACMA website is an essential communications tool for members such as Cable & Wireless, Hibernia Atlantic, Verizon and SFN who depend on real time access to information regarding vessel locations and maintenance agreements. ACMA selected SFN from amongst its 60+ specialised sub-sea operators, following in the footsteps of previous members who managed the site.
