“The undersea world is really on an upswing right now,” DRG Managing Partner Elaine Stafford says in this JSA TV interview, but clarifies that DRG doesn’t view it as a boom/bust cycle. “We really see it as a steady growth path for quite some time.”
That’s one main theme from DRG’s latest JSA TV video, which was filmed from the buzzing ITW 2018 showroom floor. In the video, Elaine discusses the state of the submarine cable space, what’s driving growth, the burgeoning technologies that are helping to facilitate the many new subsea projects in the works and DRG’s trajectory over the next year.
Check out the video to hear about ROADM and C+L band technology, aging cables and coopetition, among other topics.
“Figuring out new ways to let everybody work together constructively is something that we really look forward to doing as time progresses,” Elaine said. “There’s room for everybody in the market. This industry has long been one of people working together and cooperating even though they’re competitors, and I think we’ll see more of that and find new ways of doing that in the future.”
