Boston. September 8, 2017 – Seaborn Networks, a leading developer-owner-operator of submarine fiber optic cable systems, announced today that its Seabras-1 subsea cable system is ready for operations. Seaborn’s Seabras-1 is a new 6-fiber pair, 72Tbps submarine cable system that is the first and only direct point-to-point system between São Paulo (Brazil) and New York (US).
Seabras-1 is owned jointly by Seaborn Networks and Partners Group (a global private markets investment manager with USD 66 billion in assets under management) on behalf of its clients. Seaborn operates and maintains Seabras-1 from its offices in the United States and Brazil, including Seaborn’s own dedicated network operations centers in New Jersey and Massachusetts.
Seabras-1 offers a faster and more reliable carrier class route between the commercial centers of Brazil and the US than competing systems, with improved quality of service, a more resilient network architecture and 100% underground terrestrial backhaul in Brazil. By purchasing directly from Seaborn, customers also benefit from the ability to communicate directly with the owner-operator of the system, industry-leading turnarounds for circuit activation and unique purchasing platforms.
Seaborn’s proprietary SeaSpeed™ solution to the financial vertical will commence service in Q4 2017. SeaSpeed is the lowest latency route between the trading exchanges of New Jersey and São Paulo (B3/BM&FBovespa), with dedicated capacity from B3 (SPA) in São Paulo to Carteret and onward to your choice of New York or New Jersey points of presence.Posted on 8th September 2017
