Sunesys has been selected by Seaborn Networks to provide a diverse backhaul solution for the US component of the Seabras-1 submarine cable project. Sunesys, a dark fibre and lit network services provider with over 8,900 fibre route miles in the US, will construct the backhaul link between Seabras-1’s US landing station and the CoreSite and Equinix facilities in New Jersey.
Seabras-1 is a 40Tbps submarine cable system being built for Seaborn Networks by Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks. The system will provide the first direct route between Sao Paulo, Brazil and New York, with an additional branch landing in Fortaleza, Brazil. The cable is expected to be ready for service in 2015.
