Eletronet, Brazil's national service provider, announced on Wednesday that it has selected Seaborn Networks and its international submarine fiber-optic cable system, Seabras-1, to provide Tier 1 Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) in Brazil. Seaborn's Seabras-1 solution also provides dedicated international capacity ensuring the most reliable customer experience while avoiding the problems associated with shared traffic that is often an issue for international IP in Brazil.

"We are extremely pleased to have this Tier 1 IP solution from Seaborn," said Anderson Mendes Jacopetti, Eletronet's Chief Technology Officer. "Because Seaborn owns and operates one of Brazil's newest and most direct international submarine backbones and also has all-underground metro and backhaul fiber networks in Brazil, these factors further enhance the reliability of Seaborn's Dedicated Internet Access solution." 

"We are grateful to have been selected to provide Dedicated Internet Access to Eletronet, as it is the largest provider of transport connectivity in Brazil," said Larry Schwartz, Seaborn's Chairman & CEO. "The Eletronet-Seaborn partnership reflects the culmination of a long-standing strong relationship between the two companies."

Seaborn Network's Seabras-1 system is a lower-latency submarine fiber optic route that offers the only direct path between New York and São Paulo. As a platform, Seaborn's Seabras-1 provides Eletronet with a global footprint of dedicated high-speed IP services and burst capabilities, with direct interconnects to all major content delivery networks, content providers and cloud networks, as well as all Tier 1 networks globally.

Eletronet has 155 Points of Presence (PoPs) and 16,000km of fiber capacity, providing wavelength and Ethernet services to Internet Service Providers throughout Brazil. With Seaborn's Seabras-1 DIA, Eletronet now has the ability to deliver IP transit services globally to its customers on a newer, more reliable and faster route than ever before.
