Seaborn Networks Selects Sunesys for Brazil-US Submarine Cable Project
Seaborn Networks and Sunesys announced that Sunesys has been selected by Seaborn Networks to provide a diverse backhaul solution in the US for the Seabras-1 submarine cable project.
Seabras-1 is a 40 Tbps submarine cable system being built for Seaborn Networks by Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks. The system will provide the first direct route between Sao Paulo and New York, with a branch landing in Fortaleza, Brazil.
Sunesys, LLC, a dark fiber and lit network services provider with over 8,900 fiber route miles in the US will shortly commence the construction and delivery of a new diverse fiber backhaul network to provide Seaborn Networks with connectivity from Seabras-1’s US landing station to CoreSite and Equinix facilities in New Jersey.
“We are delighted with the overall solution that Sunesys will be delivering to Seaborn for this critical part of the Seabras-1 network,” said Larry Schwartz, CEO of Seaborn Networks. “The level of performance and diversity of this new Sunesys fiber backbone network in the US will enable Seaborn to implement one of the most robust international backhaul networks in the industry.”
“Seaborn is building one of the largest bandwidth submarine cable systems in the world and Sunesys is honored to provide the terrestrial cornerstone of that network in the US,” said Alan Katz, Senior Vice President of Sunesys. “Our new diverse fiber network will be ready towards the end of 2014 to ensure the high quality and reliability of the end-to-end solution provided on Seabras-1.”
The ready for service date for Seabras-1 is in 2015.
