If you have a question about this talk, please contact All of us on the IET Cambridge Committee.

This talk tells how the challenges of getting these fibre cables to survive hostile subsea conditions have been met with a little help from a bush fire in Papua New Guinea. Rob Struzyna has spent 40 years working in Subsea engineering. He was Technical Director of the company which laid the first international fibre optic cable from the UK to Belgium followed by the first trans-Atlantic fibre crossing. The talk will also include a network repair at 9200m water depth (almost the deepest place on Earth).
