Aqua Comms Limited (AquaComms), a provider of scalable, subsea capacity-based network solutions, announces today that its Chief Operations Officer, Greg Varisco, will participate in a workshop at PTC’16 taking place 17–20 January 2016 in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort. Mr. Varisco will present at the conference’s “Submarine Cable Workshop: Waves of Change!” on Sunday, 17 January, at 11 am at Coral 2.

Organized by the David Ross Group, an international consultancy that specializes in undersea telecommunications networks, the Submarine Cable Workshop will examine how submarine cables comprise the critical infrastructure for the modern world of communications, carrying over 98% of intercontinental data traffic. Alongside executives from TE SubCom, Telekomunikasi Indonesia International, Microsoft and TeleGeography, Mr. Varisco will explore how subsea cables, including Aqua Comms’ America Europe Connect (AEConnect), one of the first transatlantic cables constructed between New York City and London in nearly 15 years, provide a web of comprehensive connectivity, reliability and redundancy.

Subtitled “The Changing Global Cable Map, What’s Next?” the Submarine Cable Workshop will also address the huge volumes of demand from Over-the-Top (OTT) content providers and the effects these demands will have on building the network of the future.
