【Summary Description】For a long time, it was impossible to lay a submarine network cable from London to Tokyo through the northwest channel between the North American mainland and the Arctic Archipelago. This is because the Submarine communications cable route is covered with ice all year round.
For a long time, it was impossible to lay a submarine network cable from London to Tokyo through the northwest channel between the North American mainland and the Arctic Archipelago. This is because the Submarine communications cable route is covered with ice all year round.
Now, due to rising temperatures and the disappearance of ice from August to October, a Canadian communication company wants to lay a 10000 mile submarine network cable in this gap.
The Arctic Optical Fiber Company in Toronto will soon begin to investigate the Submarine communications cable route, connecting Britain and Japan, and passing through several landing points. The submarine network cable does not need to rely on land cables from unstable regions in the Middle East, and can diversify global fiber optic data networks. This is similar to the recently completed Submarine communications cable project connecting Russia and Crimea.
The telecommunications industry and companies are calling for more data connectivity. They have lingering concerns about the slowdown or suspension of communication in Asia caused by the 2008 Mediterranean cable damage. However, cable routes through the Middle East have also become attractive targets for destruction.
The cross Arctic Circle submarine network cable project has avoided the above situation. In addition to the endpoints in the UK and Japan, another point is located in Canada, and the vast majority of the cables will be operated underwater. Of course, this requires detailed investigation to find a precise path where the cable will not be obstructed by rocks, pulled by tides, or crushed by rock collapses.
The 620 million yuan (about 3.82 billion yuan) submarine network cable project will also bring network connections to the unstable data connection regions of Northern Alaska and Canada.
The submarine survey of the project will begin in the next few months, and a path will be drawn on the seabed using side scan sonar, digital cameras, electromagnetic probes and Core sample.
Doug Cunningham, CEO of Arctic Fiber Optics, directly stated when explaining that the submarine network cable project is now feasible that it is driven by climate change.

Recently, an Israeli inventor launched a pocket infrared spectrometer called SCiO, which can be used to scan physical objects around and deconstruct their chemical components. It can not only test the composition of food, but also detect whether plants need to be watered, what kind of medicine the label is torn off, and even test the ingredients of gold, rubber, and leather. At the same time, it will quickly feed real-time information back to smartphones, which may greatly change the way people shop and improve the quality of healthy life in the future.More +
