Seaborn Networks connects to Webby Internet’s backbone in Brazil
Seaborn Networks (Seaborn) and Webby Internet, a broadband network operator in Brazil, have formed a connectivity partnership.
Specifically, Seaborn’s network is providing international connectivity to Webby’s backbone, enabling Webby to offer enhanced services and attract new customers in Brazil.
“Our partnership with Seaborn provides us an international connection to the world Internet, giving us the ability to offer our customers enhanced data, low latency, great stability, usage protection and higher quality services,” said Marcelino Cabral, CEO of Webby Internet.
Webby’s Internet backbone, spanning 2,500kmin length and offers coverage to more than 100 cities, is now linked to Seaborn’s IP network for the Americas. Seaborn’s IP network is underpinned by its Seabras-1 and AMX-1 subsea cables, delivering high levels of reliability and low latency.
Additionally, through this partnership Webby will be able to get closer to reaching its goal of providing best-in-class connectivity to 437,000 new residents within its network service areas.
“Webby’s customers require low latency IP to keep up with its streaming and gaming growth, and our IP network has been designed to deliver content to end users using cutting-edge technology,” said Michel Marcelino (pictured), senior vice president and head of Latin America at Seaborn.
“Our infrastructure combined with our presence in the most relevant internet exchanges in the world makes our IP the ideal offering to Webby, allowing it to attract new customers while providing enhanced services of fixed broadband in the regions it operates.”
In related news, April saw data centre and connectivity service provider Ascenty choose Seaborn’s international fibre network to connect its São Paulo and Vinhedo data centres in Brazil to the US.
Ascenty is now linked to Seabras-1, connecting more than 350 customers in its data centers that serve content providers, e-commerce and public cloud processing companies, and corporations in the financial sectors.
