Flexential has announced that it is expanding its FlexAnywhere offering by giving its customers access to Seaborn Network’s Seabras-1 subsea cable system.

Through this new partnership with Seaborn, FlexAnywhere now offers a route on Seabras-1 giving Flexential customers the lowest latency available in the market. Seabras-1 spans from New York/New Jersey, US to Sao Palo, Brazil offering 72Tbps of capacity.

"With the Latin American subsea cable, we are delivering on our promise of expansion by offering the fastest and most reliable wholesale route from the US to Brazil," said Chris Downie, chief executive officer, Flexential. "Just like our New Cross Pacific cables to Asia and the Hawaiki submarine cable to Australia and New Zealand, the Seabras-1 to South America is built for performance that is second to none. This enables us to provide our customers with more connections to the world through the latest generation of high-capacity, ultra-low latency service delivered in a fraction of the time of legacy suppliers."

Data traveling from the US to Brazil is growing at a 30% compound annual growth rate due to broadband adoption, bandwidth-heavy application adoption, and a broader business shift of Brazilian businesses to the cloud. In response, Seabras-1 aims to meet this need while at the same time filling the void of legacy US-Brazil network systems that are nearing its end-of-life.

"Our vision is defined by flexibility: we pioneered a pay as you grow business model and the most responsive service delivery capability based on customer's requested due date that enables all purchasers of U.S. to Brazil network services," added Larry Schwartz, chief executive officer, Seaborn Networks. "Flexential's dedication to giving its customers the flexibility they need to grow and evolve makes them an ideal partner for us, and we look forward to continuing to push boundaries to give our shared customers the very best."
