Seaborn and DE-CIX partner on global internet exchange connectivity
DE-CIX and Seaborn confirm the launch Seaborn’s interconnection to DE-CIX New York and access and interconnection services to DE-CIX Internet Exhanges (IXs) in Marseille, Madrid, Dallas and Frankfurt.
The interconnection gives Seaborn customers the ability to access DE-CIX IXs through a single one-stop-shop solution directly with Seaborn, or to select Seaborn’s network for transport connectivity to DE-CIX.
Leveraging Seaborn’s Seabras-1 subsea fibre cable between Sao Paulo and New York, which has a measured latency of 107.68ms round trip delay between metropolitan Sao Paulo points of presence (PoPs) and DE-CIX New York, Seabras-1 provides the most direct path from Brazil to DE-CIX.
“Across the Americas, sophisticated customers are looking for more than just IP connectivity, and so the ability to leverage the value provided by DE-CIX exchanges on a global basis is very important to them,” said Michel Marcelino (pictured), senior vice president and head of Latin America for Seaborn.
Through the partnership, customers in South America can easily provision remote peering with DE-CIX and Seaborn’s regional reach throughout Latin America, enabling customers to benefit from easily peering at multiple global DE-CIX exchanges to reach the most networks through a single connection.
“Through the partnership with Seaborn, thousands of networks in South America are now able to join DE-CIX, the largest neutral interconnection and peering ecosystem worldwide,” added Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International.
“Especially interconnecting in New York becomes extremely attractive in comparison to Miami. Using the low latency at the Seaborn infrastructure, network operators from Latin America can enjoy the huge variety of connectivity and peering options at DE-CIX New York as their natural global gateway to North America, Canada and Europe at the same time.”
In addition, customers can choose to purchase transport to peer directly through Seaborn with a single agreement or to capitalise on Seaborn’s network and interconnection with DE-CIX to purchase transport to peer and enter a relationship with DE-CIX directly.
