Seaborn Networks has established an interconnection to DE-CIX New York, enabling turn-key direct access from its Seabras-1 cable system.

Seaborn’s interconnection to DE-CIX New York provides Seabras-1 customers in South America with the ability to reach over 200 networks within the US without incurring long provisioning intervals and additional costs such as cross connect fees. 

Additionally, customers on Seabras-1 gain access to DE-CIX Frankfurt via its GlobePEER Remote solution, which gives VLAN connectivity from DE-CIX New York. The solution enables companies to peer with networks connected to DE-CIX Frankfurt and Marseille as well as Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf and Istanbul.

“This partnership with DE-CIX provides Brazil’s IP networks with one-stop-shop, remote IPX access to DE-CIX’s most compelling interconnect locations, leveraging the scale and agility of Seaborn’s Seabras-1 system,” said Larry Schwartz, CEO of Seaborn Networks. “In this new arrangement, Seaborn is pleased to continue supporting the global expansion initiatives of Brazil’s ISP community.”

With a direct connection to DE-CIX New York and its GlobePEER Remote solution, Seaborn‘s Seabras-1 customers benefit from the following features:

  • The lowest latency path between São Paulo, Brazil and DE-CIX New York via Seabras-.1
    • A turnkey solution that bypasses traditional interconnection challenges due to newly established direct connectivity to DE-CIX.
    • Direct access to DE-CIX Frankfurt and Marseille via GlobePEER Remote, which in turn offers no additional cross connect fees to reach any DE-CIX customer globally. As well as the most direct route to New York, avoiding hurricane zones of the Southeast US and the Caribbean.
    • A more reliable and resilient path between Brazil, USA and Europe using Seaborn’s 24/7 proprietary network operations centre and benefitting from 100% subterranean backhaul within Brazil.

“I am thrilled that DE-CIX’s unique solution is now available to South American networks over Seabras-1’s lowest latency network to New York,” added Ed d'Agostino, general manager, DE-CIX North America. “Through Seaborn, DE-CIX is readily accessible throughout Brazil bringing world-class connectivity between
