Bluewater unveils terrestrial cross-border North American route


Bluewater Regional Networks, Inc. (BRN) has established a new terrestrial Canada-US network route, which utilises a brand-new border crossing.

An affiliate of the Bluewater Power Group of Companies, BRN's new route offers redundant and diverse connectivity between Toronto, Ontario, Canada and Chicago (pictured). The firm said its new crossing linking Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan, "provides the ability to design unique network solutions between and throughout Canada and the US".

It is scheduled to go live on 1 March 2021.

COO Chris Gould explained: "Our community-owned network was established to solve the local digital divide issues throughout the Sarnia-Lambton region, with an emphasis on a global approach to enhance connectivity to Canada and throughout North America. Headquartered in Sarnia, our region is uniquely positioned and has served as a highly traversed commercial gateway between Canada and the United States for over a century, we are excited to add to our story with this new historical network route.”

The BRN network is designed as a new, non-incumbent route that completely avoids 151 Front Street (Toronto) and 350 E. Cermak (Chicago). The path provides direct cross-border connectivity from 45 Parliament, Toronto, and Sarnia, ON to 427 S LaSalle, Chicago, IL with multiple access points throughout Ontario and within the States of Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois.
