Seaborn Networks announced that its Seabras-1 subsea cable system is ready for operations. Seaborn's Seabras-1 is a new 6-fiber pair, 72-Tbps 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 US$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.
