Seabras 1 USA, LLC and its affiliates (“Seaborn”) operates a network serving Internet Services Providers and Content Delivery Networks across the countries of Brazil and Argentina, leveraging multiple subsea routes (including Seaborn owned and operated Seabras-1 cable) to bring traffic from the US into Latin America.
Our peering policy in the United States is generally open and we will peer at any peering exchange we have in common in our primary US markets, which are New York/New Jersey, Ashburn, Virginia and Miami, Florida. In Brazil and Argentina, our peering policy is more selective. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss peering within Latin America.
We do not require formal contracts but will certainly review and sign NDA’s and formal peering agreements if your organization requires it.
- Seaborn uses PeeringDB as a single source of truth. For public IXP’s, your information must be kept up to date in order for a bilateral peering session to be established and maintained.
- Seaborn will employ route-prefix-filtering and/or max-prefix limits to secure the peering and prevent accidental route leaks. Both parties should maintain an up-to-date route-set or AS-SET as well as recommended prefix limit in PeeringDB.
- The NOC contact email listed in PeeringDB must respond to any issues raised in a timely manner.
- The parties will notify each other of planned maintenance that may impact the peering session using the NOC contact email with at least 48 hours’ notice.
- Both parties will announce routes consistently (same quantity, prefix-length and MED) across all peering locations unless otherwise agreed to in writing.
- Both parties will maintain adequate capacity to the public exchange in which traffic passes to ensure a positive customer experience for our mutual customers.
- Traffic levels in excess of 20Gbps must move to a Private Network Interconnect (PNI) and PNI’s must be augmented in a timely manner to prevent congestion.
- Both parties will provide tools, such as a public looking glass, to aid in troubleshooting and diagnosis of the peering relationship
- To ensure quality of operations, we reserve the following rights under our peering policy:
- Seaborn can alter our policy and requirement at any time.
- Seaborn can accept or decline a peering request at any time for any reason
- Seaborn will suspend, without notice, peering connectivity in the event of:
- A service quality issue affecting our customers, such as but not limited to latency, packet loss or jitter.
- A security issue, such as a major DDoS attack, route-hijack or other security related problem.
- A violation of our Acceptable Use Policy
- As a result of an order by a regulatory or other authoritative body with jurisdiction.
- Seaborn may selectively withdraw prefixes temporarily from public exchanges if necessary to protect service quality.
- To terminate an existing peering connection at any time for any reason without notice.
