OceanWorks International says it has finished the Poseidon Diode Interface (PDI) project for CSnet. The completed PDI design will protect the Offshore Communication Backbone (OCB) – a seafloor network developed for the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Cyprus – from any electrical fault in the Poseidon cable.

The subsea network contains as part of its capability, the Tsunami Warning and Early Response system for Cyprus (TWERC).

The Poseidon cable will provide direct connection to the OCB and provide power to the Poseidon system. A number of advantages, including higher bandwidth, lower latency communications, increased power, improved availability and reduced operations costs is realized from the direct connection of the OCB to shore.

Complex, reliable and adaptable systems are just one component of the OceanWorks International suite of subsea engineering and design capabilities serving the Scientific, Environmental, Oil, Gas and Military communities.
