Mako Deepwater increased its engineering and production staff in response to a record backlog and continued strong demand for its intervention tooling and deck equip- ment business lines. Tom Ayars,
Mako DeepWater's President said "I'm appreciative for the loyal sup- port our customers have shown us.
With their help we've been able to defy the downward trend some com- panies are experiencing in the oil industry. Our intervention tooling business gets stronger by the day and the addition of the deck equipment product line in Q3 2008 has proven to be a good move for us with the award of four projects in the last sev- eral months. To continue providing our clients with fast response and reliable service, we've been pleased to have the opportunity to expand our staff, creating jobs in a softening economy." www.makodeepwater.com
Tyco Sets Subsea
Tyco Telecommunications announced the successful demon- stration of 40Gb/s transmission over ultra-long haul distances. The test was conducted using dark fibers on the existing Tata Communications
TGN-Pacific submarine cable system that links Tokyo to multiple USA
West Coast city PoPs. The data reportedly was carried from
Toyohashi, Japan to Los Angeles without the need for regeneration.
The demonstration marks the next step in the ongoing progression of undersea cable data rates and will ultimately enable such undersea cable systems to carry more capacity over existing links.
