What is the Impact of Coronavirus on the Subsea Cable Industry?


Baker Botts participated in a Total Telecom webinar discussing 'What is the Impact of Coronavirus on the Subsea Cable Industry' on Tuesday 2 June 2020.

The submarine cable industry is global by nature and as such is bound to be impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, which has largely halted international movement and temporarily shut down factories and businesses worldwide.

Yet, the subsea market provides the backbone of the world’s internet and so, how is the industry keeping us connected during these difficult times? What will be the impact on the new builds planned for 2020?

Speakers Included:

  • Keith Schofield, General Manager, International Cable Protection Committee
  • Nigel Bayliff, CEO, Aqua Comms
  • Didier Dillard, CEO, Orange Marine
  • Andy Bax, COO, Seaborn Networks
  • Taneli Vuorinen, EVP, Cinia
