Seaborn Networks, a global developer-owner-operator of submarine fiber optic cable systems, has deployed Infinera to launch AMX-1 submarine network services connecting the U.S. and Brazil.

Powered by Infinera’s XT Series submarine network platforms, featuring Infinera’s Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE) technology, Seaborn’s new network would boast modernized architecture and spectral efficiency. It would enable the company to optically bypass cable landing stations and reduce network costs.

To address global bandwidth needs across the Americas, Seaborn Networks operates two cable systems, Seabras-1 and AMX-1, both powered by Infinera solutions.

“Our longstanding relationship with Infinera and this collaboration have enabled us to cost-efficiently address our customers’ growing capacity demands with reliable, low-latency solutions purpose-built for subsea transport,” said Paul Cannon, Vice President of Engineering & Operations at Seaborn. “Key factors in Seaborn’s selection of Infinera’s solutions are its history of consistently delivering industry-leading optical engines and the roadmap for its ICE6 800G generation technology.”

“Key factors in Seaborn’s selection of Infinera’s solutions are its history of consistently delivering industry-leading optical engines and the roadmap for its ICE6 800G generation technology,” said Paul Cannon, Vice President of Engineering & Operations at Seaborn.

Seaborn’s AMX-1 cable system provides transport, Ethernet private line, and IP services on a geographically diverse path from its Seabras-1 cable, connecting Rio de Janeiro and Jacksonville, Florida, to offer its customers high-capacity, low-latency connectivity services.

“We’re pleased to partner with Seaborn Networks to provide submarine network services enabling the company to operate a resilient, high-capacity network,” said Nick Walden, Senior Vice President, Sales at Infinera. “Infinera’s optical engines consistently demonstrate proven benefits in subsea applications, delivering superior spectral efficiency while significantly lowering network costs. With Infinera’s optical engine, Seaborn has the network capacity needed today and can seamlessly upgrade its network in the future to Infinera’s ICE6 800G generation coherent technology with ease as bandwidth demands dictate.”
