The ‘underlying’ problem with undersea fiber optic

cable.

This gives a whole new meaning to the title, ‘Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea’.  There are both existing and planned fiber optic undersea cables to span the Seven Seas.  This massive undertaking is what connects the continents of our world.  However it is not a failsafe means of technology.  It has a familiar ring of yesteryear when the telegraph was just beginning to boom connecting the West Coast to the East Coast in the Old West of America.  The only problem was Native American Tribes were sabotaging the telegraph poles in their territory!  Well, we got that all worked out eventually.  But a fiber cut is a catastrophic event that can take days and in some cases weeks.  I recall back in the years around 1999 to 2000 there was not just a cut but an incineration caused by a train fire inside of a tunnel where the cabling was installed.  It was designed to protect the fiber optics from being damaged.  Woops.  To make matters worse, it was a chemical fire where poisonous and corrosive acid fumes were present not unlike battery acid that made it difficult for firefighters to put out and contain the situation any time soon.  You live and learn. If you search online you will find that the Indian Ocean has had some nasty severed fiber optic cables that took over two weeks to repair!  It literally shut down Indian Call Centers overseas for businesses all over the world.  Chaos ensued.  Another incident took place on the eastern coast of Africa where a ship’s anchor ripped through the fiber optic cable.  To appreciate how difficult and time consuming a fiber optic cut repair really is, just think about a man or a woman with long hair.  Now imagine someone with great physical strength grabbing right in the middle length and pulling apart (by the handful) the person’s hair.  That’s a brutal picture to say the least.  NOW imagine the repair is a blow torch and reconnecting every strand of hair one by one.  Except this ‘hair’ is a fiber optic strand of FRAGILE glass-like material.  It is meticulous to repair to say the least.  On land it’s hard but two miles deep in the middle of an ocean is ridiculous!  So if you reside in North America, it only makes sense to keep your web site on the main land.
