Endpoint host announced for Brazil-US cable

The US endpoint of the AMX-1 subsea cable between the US and Brazil is to be hosted by JaxNAP.

Seaborn Networks, a developer-owner-operator of transoceanic subsea fibre optic cable systems, and Jacksonville’s Network Access Point (JaxNAP), servicing specific needs, data centre needs and local area networks in Northeast Florida, have announced that JaxNAP will host Seaborn as the endpoint for the AMX-1 subsea cable between Jacksonville, Florida and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

This system provides customers with a direct, low-latency and high-availability route. Seaborn will offer its full Wavelength suite: highly scaled MEF-compatible ethernet and IP services that provide direct connectivity to its internet backbone (AS13786). High-capacity integration into the Seabras-1 cable system will also enable the company to deliver fully protected services between the US and Brazil.

Jacksonville’s Network Access Point not only offers direct overland connections to Dallas, Atlanta, and all of north-eastern Florida with its 34 carriers. It also connects Central and South America, the Caribbean, and other distant regions via its subsea cable connections.

Seaborn Networks’ portfolio of submarine fibre optic cable systems includes Seabras-1 between São Paulo and New York. Seabras-1 is described as the only direct POP to POP system between São Paulo and New York metro, offering the lowest latency route between the B3 exchange in São Paulo and the trading exchanges of New Jersey.
