Yap & Palau Spur Cable Loading Continues - March 2017
Cable Landing Station loaded for transport - March 2017.
Long distance cable networks require repeaters every 100km or so to correct for any distortions in the transmission of data. One repeater is required for the Palau spur. Here we see the Palau repeater leaving the OCC Factory. March 2017.
Repeaters are designed to operate without failures at extreme ocean depths. We don't want them damaged in transit. This is a shock indicator to ensure we can be confident the repeater has not suffered any untoward incidents while being transported. March 2017.
