NEPTUNE Canada's infrastructure is uniquely designed to support real-time cabled observation from multiple instruments and locations distributed across a broad region. Major components of our network were designed, manufactured and installed under a contract with Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks. These include the backbone cable, branching units and spur cables and major network nodes. Junction boxes, produced by OceanWorks, are connected to the network nodes via extension cables and ODI wet-mate connectors. Each junction box can support multiple instrument platforms, individual instruments and sensors. In addition, power, communications and data processing are handled at our shore station and headquarters facilities.
