Xtreme-Net® Deep Water Ethernet

The Xtreme-Net® underwater video cable is designed for use in deep-water with pressure up to 10,000 PSI. These uniquely designed underwater video cables can maintain high-speed Ethernet data transmission under extreme pressure in bottom-laid applications. Xtreme-Net® cables have been tested and validated to meet industry Ethernet standard TIA/EIA-568B, with less than 2% change in values when tested to 6,000 PSI. We have achieved data rates of 100Mbps Fast Ethernet, 270Mbps Digital video and up to 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet achieved.
