The 2015 Submarine Cable Map is Here!

As originally written and published in TeleGeography

TeleGeography is pleased to announce that our 2015 Submarine Cable Map, sponsored by PCCW Global, is now available!

This year’s map pays tribute to the pioneering mapmakers of the Age of Discovery, incorporating elements of medieval and renaissance cartography. In addition to serving as navigational aids, maps from this era were highly sought after works of art, often adorned with fanciful illustrations of real and imagined dangers at sea. Such embellishments largely disappeared in the early 1600s, pushing modern map design in a purely functional direction. TeleGeography’s newest map brings back the lost design aesthetic that vanished along with these whimsical details, to provide a view of the global submarine cable network seen through the lens of a bygone era.

Clearing the smoke and mirrors – whatisIPX.com

At the IPX Summit, London, TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) today announced the launch of whatisIPX.com containing an interactive set of web resources and a comprehensive IPX Q&A, the site also features presentations and blog posts from industry thought-leaders. With a cumulative experience in the information and communications technology sector surpassing 60 years, current whatisIPX.com contributors include: Simon Dodsworth, VP Voice and Mobile, TSIC; Bernd Hoogkamp, Director of Product Management Voice and Mobile, TSIC; Simon Sherrington, Founder, Innovation Observatory; and Peter Nas, Solution Engineer, F5 Networks.

“In August, the GSM Association counted 206 4G-LTE commercially launched networks in 79 countries. With many more in deployment, that’s a rapid take up since the first 4G-LTE networks were launched in Sweden and Norway in 2009.” says Simon Dodsworth, VP Voice & Mobile, TeliaSonera International Carrier.“The key to supporting 4G-users ‘home’ network experience when visiting another mobile network when travelling abroad, is IPX. Yet there is widespread confusion about what IPX actually is.”

Bernd Hoogkamp, Director, Product Management, Voice and Mobile, speaking at the conference said, “With IPX networks and services still being defined, industry analysts have highlighted a considerable lack of understanding around IPX. TeliaSonera International Carrier is home of the TeliaSonera IPX, part of the TeliaSonera group of 17 mobile operators, and talks to interested parties about IPX every day. We want to share and raise the level of understanding to move IPX forward, assembling high quality resources and offering the ability to ask questions to an  ‘IPXpert’ panel of experts.
