Boston, Mass. – February 3, 2021 – Seaborn Networks (“Seaborn”), a leading developer-owner-operator of submarine fiber optic cable systems, has been selected by Vero Internet as their international traffic partner for two new point of presences (PoPs) in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Both PoPs are part of Vero Internet’s new CORE IP and are responsible for connections with submarine cable operators and the exchange of traffic of data with national and international content generators.
“We are pleased to choose Seaborn to meet the demand for international content in both cities”, states José Felipe Ruppenthal, Director of Engieniering at Vero Internet. “We choose to connect directly with a submarine cable operator like Seaborn so that we have an international interconnection that delivers higher-quality content with low latency and, consequently, improve our customers’ browsing experience.”
Today, Vero Internet is connected to the Seabras-1 submarine cable that connects Brazil to the USA with the lowest latency in the market, which provides a great competitive advantage for the customers.
“For us, it was an important step to close this partnership with Vero Internet,” comments Michel Marcelino, Senior Vice President of Seaborn for Latin America. “We have worked very closely with Vero Internet’s traffic engineering team to develop a unique international content solution through our SEABRAS-1 system to provide their customers with the best experience possible”.
In 2021, Vero Internet will duplicate the CORE IP in two other data centers in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and will create new IP routing centers in the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Paraná, expanding the strategic partnership with Seaborn to the south of Brazil.
