World’s Deepest Underwater Observatory Relies on SLB

Case Study in Baseline Magazine

Earlier this year we blogged about how our Secure Lantronix Branch (SLB) Office Manager was being used at Aloha Cabled Observatory (ACO) – the world’s deepest observatory at 3 miles below the sea surface – to securely manage remote servers and IT infrastructure equipment.

Well, Baseline Magazine thought the use case was so cool that they’ve written a great case study about it! “SLB allows the observatory to transmit data over a local network that includes fiber-optic cable, repeaters on the sea floor, computer modules that handle some processing under the surface of the sea, and addressable switches that control the traffic and process optical signals so they can travel over fiber-optic cable effectively.”
