Sparkle Launches Its Portion of Seabras-1 Cable System

Sparkle, the international service provider of TIM Group, has activated three fiber pairs it owns and manages on the new Seabras-1 cable, connecting Sao Paulo, Brazil, to New York, USA.

Sparkle’s capacity on Seabras-1 supports the fast growing demand for advanced connectivity between North and South America, as well as it caters the needs of customers in Latin America that need to connect to rest of the world.

The main advantages for Sparkle’s customers using Seabras-1 include lower latency on the US-Brazil route which has been developed on a path completely off of the hurricane risk area.

The new route, fully integrated with Sparkle’s global backbone, also increases the overall redundancy of Sparkle’s Americas network as it provides a third option for diversification, the company explained.

Seabras-1, operated by Seaborn, is a 6-fiber pair, 72Tbps submarine cable system that is the first and only direct point-to-point system between São Paulo (Brazil) and New York (US).
