Abstract : An optical-fiber submarine cable system is expected to realize the digital transmission of higher capacity with more economical basis compared with the coaxial submarine cable systems of conventional type. A long haul transmission of color television signals will become possible through a submarine cable system. It may be said that this system, together with the satellite communications will be the trunk line for international digital communication in the future. (Author)
