This is from 2018 - the submarine cable industry has come a long way
since then :-).
Channel spacing on marine systems has always been the game. Adding
intelligence into branching units (BU's), as well as improvements in
amplifier design has been a contributory factor as well.
What is interesting, now, is that in lieu of copper, aluminium is being
preferred as a conductor, to lower build costs.
