About the event

The submarine cable, first envisaged in the early 1830s was not feasible until the development of a proper insulation system, Gutta Perha, developed in Dublin, enabled the development of the submarine cable used in the early years of telegraph transmission. Soon cable design started to change and this was met with the development of new transmission technologies and Network Design. These leaps in developmental change are discussed along with the development in transmission technology.
