Seaborn selects JaxNAP as endpoint for AMX-1 cable


Seaborn Networks has chosen the JaxNAP to host its endpoint for the AMX-1 subsea cable connecting Florida and Brazil.

AMX-1 delivers a direct, low latency and high availability route from the southern US to Brazil.

“This connectivity is a game-changer for anyone in the southeast United States seeking an alternative to the NAP in Miami or the risk of terrestrial transport to connect going north to other subsea cable alternatives,” said Luke Leonaitis, senior partner of the JAX NAP.

“We expect the latency advantage to further cement Seaborn and Jacksonville as the go-to place for data flowing to Brazil and other markets in South America.”

In addition, it will feature high capacity integration into Seabras-1, enabling the delivery of fully protected services along this route.


Seaborn will offer its full suite of Wavelength, highly scaled MEF compatible Ethernet Services and IP Services providing direct connectivity to its internet backbone.

“We are delighted with our decision to have our AMX-1 end-point hosted within the JaxNAP. This will enable Seaborn’s customer base to access an alternative path that offers route diversity within one single company and on one single order,” said Michel Marcelino, senior vice president & head of Latin America for Seaborn Networks.

“We offer reduced time-to-market for any project, with a full diverse solution to customers needing connectivity between the Americas”.

Marcelino entered the role in April and is now tasked with managing Seaborn’s sales organisation and channel strategies, as well as serving as company’s most senior officer in Brazil.

Prior to his appointment, Marcelino worked for from Vogel Telecom as its chief business development officer, before which he managed the sales organisation for the last three years.
