Seaborn and Aqua Comms have formed a strategic alliance to provide a new subsea route between South America and Europe.

Seaborn’s Seabras-1 subsea fiber network between São Paulo and New York now directly interconnects with Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect-1 (AEConnect), Ireland’s first subsea fiber-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London. The offering is available exclusively through Seaborn and Aqua Comms.

The two submarine cable systems will interconnect in Secaucus, New Jersey, in the location of Seaborn’s primary network operations center. Both Seaborn and Aqua Comms offer geographically diverse backhaul and a variety of Points of Presence (PoP) locations in the metropolitan areas relating to their landing locations.

Customers will have the ability to contract through either Seaborn or Aqua Comms to receive the full benefit of this combined South America to Europe route.

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Aqua Comms to offer this precedent-setting Europe to South America route,” said Larry Schwartz, CEO, Seaborn Networks. “Our organizations are like-minded operators with a shared view of how to offer best-in-class solutions for telecommunications companies, content providers, ISPs, governments and enterprises.”

“Aqua Comms and Seaborn share heritage and a common ethos for efficiently providing innovative, flexible and reliable connectivity solutions to the Atlantic telecommunications market,” remarked Nigel Bayliff, CEO, Aqua Comms. “We both specialize in developing, constructing and operating modern, sophisticated submarine cable systems, and partnering will help us provide customers with the benefits of both conjoined networks.”

The strategic alliance between Seaborn and Aqua Comms also relates to future systems and branches that either of the parties may subsequently build and operate.
