Infinera and Seaborn Networks (Seaborn), a developer-owner-operator of submarine fiber optic cable systems, launched new submarine network services on Seaborn’s AMX-1 submarine network segment connecting the U.S. and Brazil.
To meet growing capacity demands
Seaborn’s new network enables the company to optically bypass cable landing stations and reduce network costs. To address global bandwidth needs across the Americas, Seaborn operates two cable systems, Seabras-1 and AMX-1.
Paul Cannon, Vice President of Engineering & Operations at Seaborn, said,
“Our longstanding relationship with Infinera and this collaboration have enabled us to cost-efficiently address our customers’ growing capacity demands with reliable, low-latency solutions purpose-built for subsea transport. Key factors in Seaborn’s selection of Infinera’s solutions are its history of consistently delivering industry-leading optical engines and the roadmap for its ICE6 800G generation technology.”
Seabras-1 and AMX-1 are powered by Infinera solutions. Seaborn’s AMX-1 cable system provides transport, Ethernet private line, and IP services on a geographically diverse path from its Seabras-1 cable, connecting Rio de Janeiro and Jacksonville, Florida.
Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Sales at Infinera, said,
“We’re pleased to partner with Seaborn to provide submarine network services enabling the company to operate a resilient, high-capacity network. Infinera’s optical engines consistently demonstrate proven benefits in subsea applications, delivering superior spectral efficiency while significantly lowering network costs. With Infinera’s optical engine, Seaborn has the network capacity needed today and can seamlessly upgrade its network in the future to Infinera’s ICE6 800G generation coherent technology with ease as bandwidth demands dictate.”
