Verizon is a global business that designs, builds and operates networks, information systems and mobile technologies. These help worldwide businesses and governments to expand reach, increase agility and maintain longevity Although Verizon manages subsea cables all over the world, they were particularly concerned about vessel traffic in the busy North Sea.
AssetMonitor helps to protect Verizon’s Ulysses-2 cable, running from Lowestoft in the UK to Ijmuiden in the Netherlands.
We seamlessly integrated Ulysses-2 into our system with AIS data from shore-based receivers in the UK and Netherlands. 2020 sees our 24/7 monitoring team receiving alerts and carrying out vessel interventions on Verizon’s behalf.
“AssetMonitor is helpful in warning off vessels that may damage undersea cables. They provide evidence in repair claims when damage occurs and assist with targeted marine liaison and cable awareness activities.” David Moore, Senior Network Infrastructure Planner.
