New subsea cable provides the lowest latency route to Brazil

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – November 4, 2019 – Flexential, a leading provider of data center colocation and hybrid IT solutions, today announced it is expanding its FlexAnywhere offering, providing customers direct access to Seaborn Networks’ transoceanic platform for the low latency, high-speed, 72-terabits-per-second seamless connection to Latin America. The Latin American subsea cable, called Seabras-1, spans from New York/New Jersey, U.S. to Sao Palo, Brazil.

Accoustic Release Sub-Sea Cable

Via this new partnership with Seaborn, FlexAnywhere now offers a route on Seabras-1, the only non-stop path between the commercial centers of the U.S. and Brazil, giving Flexential customers the lowest latency available in the market. Latency-sensitive applications rely heavily on the shortest and most stable network paths, and Seaborn has architected its solution to deliver on both fronts.

“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 U.S. 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.”

The amount of data traveling from the U.S. to Brazil is growing at a 30 percent CAGR due to broadband adoption, bandwidth-heavy application adoption, and a broader business shift of Brazilian businesses to the cloud. At the same time, many legacy U.S.-Brazil network systems are nearing end-of-life and need to be replaced. Seaborn’s latest generation transoceanic network platform is a simple solution for network buyers looking to quickly phase out current end-of-life systems.

“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 US to Brazil network services,” said 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.”
