EASSy Network - Submarine Technology
The EASSy network consists of terrestrial ("dry") and undersea ("wet") components, as shown in the diagram:
EASSy will be monitored, controlled and configured from the Network Operating Centre (NOC) via a network management system (NMS) that will interface with all EASSy components. The NME will be installed at the NOC and at each landing or terrestrial station. The system will be capable of distributing control across a number of locations, enabling local control of landing station equipment and allowing NOC activity to be transferred to another site in case of failure.
