Seaborn Networks, a developer-owner-operator of transoceanic subsea fiber optic cable systems, and Jacksonville’s Network Access Point (JaxNAP), servicing specific needs data center needs and local area networks in Northeast Florida, have announced that the JAX NAP (Jacksonville Network Access Point) will host Seaborn as their endpoint for the AMX-1 Subsea cable between Jacksonville, Florida and Rio de Janeiro Brazil.
“This will enable Seaborn’s customer base to access an alternative path that offers route diversity within one single company and on one single order,” said Michel Marcelino, Senior Vice President & Head of Latin America for Seaborn. “We offer reduced time-to-market for any project, with a full diverse solution to customers needing connectivity between the Americas.”
This system would provide users with a direct, low latency and high availability route from the southern United States to Brazil. Seaborn Networks will offer its full suite of Wavelength, highly scaled MEF compatible Ethernet Services and IP Services providing direct connectivity to their internet backbone (AS13786). High capacity integration into Seabras-1 would also enable the delivery of fully protected services between the US and Brazil.
“This connectivity is a game-changer for anyone in the southeast United States seeking an alternative to the NAP in Miami or the risk of terrestrial transport to connect going north to other subsea cable alternatives,” said Luke Leonaitis, Senior Partner of the JAX NAP. “We expect the latency advantage to further cement Seaborn and Jacksonville as the go-to place for data flowing to Brazil and other markets in South America.”
