KM3NeT is a future deep-sea research infrastructure hosting a neutrino telescope with a volume of more than one cubic kilometre to be constructed in the Mediterranean Sea. In the context of the Preparatory Phase of KM3NeT, funded by the EU FP7 framework, the engineering design of the deep-sea telescope has been carried out and optimized to prepare rapid and efficient construction. This paper presents the technical solutions that have been developed for the construction of the deep sea floor network. Special focus will be on the star-like subsea network with emphasis on the electrical power system, the deep-sea electro-optical cables, the connection systems and the junction boxes.
