In this paper we review the history and the evolution of the technologies enabling the design, manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of undersea telecommunication cables deployed around the globe. We highlight pivotal historical events, and also focus on developments in cable transmission media and characteristics, materials for robust handling and optimal subsea performance, and advancements in ships, cable handling equipment, and marine tools used to deploy and maintain these systems.
