Future Landing Station Configuration
ROME provides connectivity between the incoming traffic on the terrestrial network and the Submarine Line Termination Equipment (SLTE). Allows remote connectivity from multiple terrestrial networks into the Submarine cable. allows protection to be added to the terrestrial networks in the event of a terrestrial fiber cut by remotely connecting to a new fiber path adding the protected route back to the circuit after a fiber cut has caused a protection switch
ROME provides connectivity between the SLTE and the Submarine Cables. Allows remote connectivity to allow protection to be added back to the submarine network in the event of a submarine fibre cut by remotely connecting to a new fiber path adding the protected route back to the circuit. With Submarine cable cuts taking anything up to months to be repaired it is vital that communications are not allowed to remain on an unprotected fiber.
By definition, Submarine cables have many geographically dispersed Cable Landing Stations (CLS); the ability to remotely manage and configure physical connectivity allows almost instantaneous changes to be implemented without the costs and delays of sending engineers to site.
