News and Business

Seaborn Networks, the developer-owner-operator of transoceanic subsea fibre optic cable systems, has announced new high capacity connectivity from its Seabras-1 IP Network directly into key global IX (internet exchange) locations.

Seabras-1 goes between São Paulo, Brazil and New York, and is the only direct PoP to PoP system between those two metro areas. It offers the lowest latency route between the B3 exchange in São Paulo and the trading exchanges of New Jersey.

“We continue to see tremendous growth across our high-quality IP Network as we develop new and innovative connectivity options for our customers through our transit and peering fabric, or by enabling direct, high capacity connectivity to our IX partners,” said Seaborn COO Andy Bax.

The new connectivity being unveiled includes that into Amsterdam, via the AMS-IX exchange and Frankfurt through the DE-CIX facility, as well to London via the LINX exchange. All these three are now live.

And by the end of this January there will be similar connectivity to San Jose through the Equinix IX (SV1), Los Angeles – CoreSite Any2 IX (LA1) – and Ashburn, Virginia using another Equinix IX (DC4).

Bax added, “Through these high capacity IX connections, we want our customers to enjoy remote peering services across an ever-growing number of strategic global exchanges. January is just the start of this exciting expansion of our IP network and we look forward to announcing more global exchanges for Seabras-1 being on-net for Seaborn shortly.”

Last October, Seaborn Networks struck a deal with Latin American managed cloud services and data centre company EdgeUno to expand their partnership with the launch of managed cloud and data centre services across the LATAM region.
