“Seaborn is delighted to be side by side with Infinera as our technology partner as we move the needle once again in service delivery capabilities for the Americas,” said Paul Cannon, Vice President of Network Development at Seaborn. “With Infinera’s solutions, Seaborn can offer a fully integrated spectrum solution across our subsea networks, which is fundamental to delivering sustainable capacity solutions to our customers while also enabling our larger customers to benefit from end-to-end spectrum capabilities with the freedom to select hardware and platforms in their existing high-capacity PoP locations. Once Infinera’s ICE6 technology is deployed on our network this summer, Seaborn will be positioned to deliver industry-leading 400 GbE PoP-to-PoP services at distances over 10,000 km.”
The Smart Spectrum Component
Seaborn runs two high-capacity open cable networks, Seabras-1 and AMX-1, that connect Brazil and the United States and provide a variety of managed digital and wavelength services. Seaborn now provides its clients new, extremely granular, all-optical spectrum sharing services thanks to Infinera’s submarine network technology. The Smart Spectrum component of Infinera’s Intelligent Power Management (IPM) system makes this possible.
Smart Spectrum enables Seaborn to provide its clients with numerous virtual fiber pairs, allowing them to benefit from open cable demarcation while being shielded from any optical power instability caused by other tenants on the same fiber pair. Seaborn will be able to improve its network with Infinera’s 800G solution, allowing it to deliver maximum capacity at the farthest reach and provide increased service flexibility while lowering operational costs and passing savings on to its clients.
“Seaborn’s ongoing commitment to Infinera’s solutions underscores the value our technology delivers to network operators globally,” said Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Infinera. “With Infinera’s ICE6 800G solution, Seaborn will continue to capitalize on the benefits of Infinera’s technology, providing its customers with access to cost-effective, high-performance, and high-capacity services.”
