Underwater communications..



Driving down the coast road on Thursday I spotted the cable ship Ile de Brahat just off Floreat Beach. Of course I didn't know that as I pulled in to check it out. Seeing the multitude of red balls my first thought was that were installing another shark net like they have at Sorrento Beach. Me to man standing watching next to me 'good to see another shark net going in'. Man to me 'actually it's the sub-sea cable system connecting WA to Singapore, this is the first section to Christmas Island.' Me to man 'absolutely, that was going to be my second guess' 😉 If you are interested in the technicalities you can read about the details of the sub-sea cable here. Happy Saturday, take care and stay safe..

  9. Wow, that's impressive! Just glancing at Google Maps, WA to Christmas Island is about 1000 miles. Cool photos!!

  10. Someone should have kept their mouth firmly closed. It is a replacement cable, it seems. So much happens behind the scenes we don't know about, but now we do know about this. A friend told me that our data traffic to the UK and Europe travels via the US, which makes it just that bit slower. I wonder how our connection to Africa travels. I expect we will find out in a few weeks.

  17. That's super cool -- the ship, your conversation, and the fact that such cables can go into the sea and do their job!
