Goodbye Tyco Telecom, hello TE SubCom

Tyco Telecommunications may have earned the reputation as the name you know in the undersea cabling systems, but now that name is going to change to Tyco Electronics Subsea Communications (TE SubCom).

David Coughlan, CEO of TE SubCom, said that while changing the company name "enables us to more closely align ourselves with our parent company," the management team will stay the same and it will continue to maintain its existing headquarters, research and development laboratories, manufacturing, ships and depots.

With the name change complete, TE SubCom will set forth on putting its stamp on various undersea cable projects in Asia, the Mid-East and North Atlantic. During 2009, TE SubCom participated in a number of high profile submarine cabling projects, including PPC-1 (Pipe Telecom), TGN-Intra Asia (Tata Communications), and the SEA Cable System (SEACOM).
