EdgeConneX has announced that Seaborn Networks has selected its Buenos Aires Edge Data Center (EDC) as the point of presence (PoP) in Argentina for Seaborn’s ARBR submarine cable.

"EdgeConneX has long recognised the need for Edge services across the globe as content delivery and cloud applications require localisation and availability. The Buenos Aires Edge Data Center, which sits at the hub to hundreds of national and multinational companies at Parque Industrial Pilar, is the ideal facility at which to interconnect our new subsea cable system," said Larry Schwartz, chairman and CEO of Seaborn Networks.

Through an interconnection to Seaborn’s Seabras-1 subsea network connecting Brazil to the US, the ARBR submarine cable also enables the newest and most direct route between Argentina and the US. The PoP at the EdgeConneX Buenos Aires EDC will provide cross-connect opportunities for all EdgeConneX customers.

"Through the introduction of cutting-edge technology, the Buenos Aires EDC will enhance economic growth throughout the region, and combined with connectivity to Seaborn’s ARBR subsea cable, will make Argentina a more attractive location for data investment by enterprises across a wide range of industries both domestically and globally," says Randy Brouckman, chief executive officer, EdgeConneX.  "As we continue to expand the edge globally in partnership with subsea cable developers and owner-operators such as Seaborn Networks, EdgeConneX enhances the delivery of cloud, content and network services not only in Buenos Aires but for international organisations seeking to expand business opportunities and connectivity options between North and South America."

The Buenos Aires EDC provides underserved regions in South America with content delivery, cloud access and international interconnectivity in an N+1 facility. A multi-tenant facility, the Buenos Aires EDC offers customers a robust connectivity and peering platform comprised of extensive fiber, density and peering options along with a highly-interconnected ecosystem of industry partners.
