    [EN] Seabras-1 subsea cable system between the USA and Brazil is ready for operations

    Press Release -- September 11th, 2017
    Source: Seaborn Networks

    Seaborn Networks, a leading developer-owner-operator of submarine fiber optic cable systems, announced today that its Seabras-1 subsea cable system is ready for operations. Seaborn’s Seabras-1 is a new 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).

    Seabras-1 is owned jointly by Seaborn Networks and Partners Group (a global private markets investment manager with USD 66 billion in assets under management) on behalf of its clients. Seaborn operates and maintains Seabras-1 from its offices in the United States and Brazil, including Seaborn’s own dedicated network operations centers in New Jersey and Massachusetts.

    Seabras-1 offers a faster and more reliable carrier class route between the commercial centers of Brazil and the US than competing systems, with improved quality of service, a more resilient network architecture and 100% underground terrestrial backhaul in Brazil. By purchasing directly from Seaborn, customers also benefit from the ability to communicate directly with the owner-operator of the system, industry-leading turnarounds for circuit activation and unique purchasing platforms.

    Seaborn’s proprietary SeaSpeed™ solution to the financial vertical will commence service in Q4 2017. SeaSpeed is the lowest latency route between the trading exchanges of New Jersey and São Paulo (B3/BM&FBovespa), with dedicated capacity from B3 (SPA) in São Paulo to Carteret and onward to your choice of New York or New Jersey points of presence.

    Seaborn and Infinera promise capacity in 30 minutes on new Seabras-1 cable

    Alan Burkitt-Gray
    12 September 2017

    Larry Schwartz, CEO of Seaborn Networks, is promising a latency of 105ms between its point of presence in metro New York and its PoP in São Paulo, Brazil, via the new Seabras-1 cable, working with technology company Infinera.

    "It’s the lowest latency carrier-class solution," said Schwartz of the cable, which is ready for service this week. More than that, "we can activate circuits within 24 hours", he added. "You sign with us, you pay for the capacity and you get it as fast as Amazon delivers to your house – or faster."

    It can do this via a close relationship with network equipment company Infinera, which operates the systems on Seaborn’s part of the cable. "We can help our customers use time as a weapon," said Tom Fallon, CEO of Infinera: the company can turn on bandwidth for Seaborn’s customers in 30 minutes.

    Infinera has a financial incentive to be fast, he added. "I get paid when Larry gets paid," he said. The close relationship means there is not even any need for Seaborn to touch the infrastructure: capacity can be turned up and down fast, virtually at well.

    Fallon and Schwartz were speaking to Capacity in an interview just before the new cable went into service.

    The hardware on Seaborn’s part of the cable is already provisioned, "every line card", said Fallon, using Infinera’s own photonic integrated circuits. "I believe we’ll change the industry. We will be able to deliver in minutes not weeks. Why would anyone want to do it differently?"

    Both Fallon and Schwartz believe this model will be used for new subsea cables as they are laid to replace current infrastructure, much of which dates back to the late 1990s and the early years of this century.

    The subsea industry’s normal business model – since as long as anyone can remember – is based on indefeasible rights of use (IRUs) lasting up to 15 years, or leases. "We have a hybrid between leases and IRUs," he said, saying the company aims at asking for steady monthly payments even as capacity increases.

    "You can light more wavelengths as and when the customer needs them. The proof will be in the pudding," said Schwartz. "It will be real when the world starts talking about it."

    Seaborn is the developer, owner and operator of Seabras-1, but other companies also have some capacity on the new cable, including Tata Communications and TIM as well as "a number of other companies". TIM "is buying three fibre pairs", said Schwartz, but no one is saying any more about how much capacity has been picked up.

    The other significant group of customers for Seaborn is high-frequency traders, for which low latency is of paramount importance. The subsea fibre is continued, all in fibre, from the landing points – without going through a shore landing station at either end – right to the local PoP. "By definition that makes it more reliable." Most downtime on previous cables is not caused by subsea breaks but by faults on the links to the nearest PoP. Seaborn avoids that with Seabras-1.

    "We’re an entrepreneurial company and our mission is to turn up capacity as fast as possible. Our definition of quality of service includes accurate invoices, good service-level agreements and the ability to activate circuits in less than 24 hours," said Schwartz.

    "In the past customers expected to sign a contract and pay, and then expected to wait 60 to 120 days to get lit capacity. With Infinera the delivery is less than 30 minutes instead of days or weeks. Infinera will light capacity as and when the customer needs it."

    Seaborn is looking at other markets for this kind of approach. "We’ve made no secret of our interest in Brazil to Argentina, and across to Cape Town, from where we can pull traffic from the Middle East and India," said Schwartz. "That would be a nice new alternate route." And such a link would appeal to companies building cloud platforms in South Africa.

    According to Fallon, Infinera "has talked about this [pay when you want the capacity] model to a lot of people". He likened the model to internet service as a utility. The company’s digital signal processors and photonic integrated circuits are playing a part in enabling this new model, he added. "In the future we’re talking about 400-600Gbps per wavelength."

    On tap today is a quick Q&A with Aqua Comms’ Nigel Bayliff. We interviewed Nigel last winter soon after he took over as CEO of the carrier’s carrier and its AEConnect and CeltixConnect-1 submarine cable systems. Aqua Comms has some network expansion projects in mind on both sides of the Atlantic, and I was able to sit down with him briefly for an update.

    You’ve been adding new terrestrial reach in the US, what’s behind that?

    So, we deliver service to all the normal PoPs in downtown Manhattan, Secaucus, 60 Hudson, etc. But we're also looking at some of these big carrier hotels out closer to the beach along the eastern seaboard, such as NJFX in Wall Township, New Jersey, where big carriers can get access to multiple cable systems. Being present in that location with the high capacity link of the Atlantic that we have on Long Island gives us an ability to serve those carriers seamlessly using their existing backhaul rather than then having to bring them all the way to Shirley, New York. If we’re doing the big heavy-duty plumbing, we’re going to do that away from the metros. If you are down in Sao Paulo and you want to get a circuit to London, you're going to ask for a 100 gig to New Jersey first. But then the last thing you want to do is go down all of the little cross streets and get yourself to 60 Hudson, connect to somebody else's network there, and then go out of the cross streets to PoP into Shirley to head across the Atlantic on our cable. What you want to do is go quickly on a high-capacity link between the two cable landing stations. And that's essentially what we're talking about here.

    Infinera and Seaborn Set Subsea Industry Benchmark for Capacity-Reach with XTS-3300 on Seabras-1

    Press Release -- September 21st, 2017
    Source: Infinera, Seaborn Networks

    Infinera, a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, and Seaborn Networks (Seaborn), a leading developer-owner-operator of submarine cable systems, announced the successful completion of a subsea field trial demonstrating the industry’s highest spectral efficiency on an ultra-long-haul subsea cable. The 8QAM trial demonstrated 4.5 bits per second per hertz on the Seabras-1 cable, owned and operated by Seaborn, with a distance of more than 10,500 kilometers (km), enabling up to 50 percent more capacity than systems without advanced coherent technologies such as Nyquist sub-carriers and SD-FEC gainsharing. This trial raises the bar for optical performance by delivering the industry’s highest spectral efficiency in a commercially shipping product.

    Infinera and Seaborn validated the performance of the Infinera XTS-3300 meshponder featuring the Advanced Coherent Toolkit (ACT) on the Seabras-1 submarine cable, helping Seaborn to maximize the return on its cable assets. Seabras-1 is one of the world’s longest uncompensated subsea cables, directly connecting North and South America. Seaborn is the exclusive operator of a Seabras-1 route that has deployed XTS-3300.

    The XTS-3300 is based on Infinera’s Infinite Capacity Engine 4 (ICE4) and is optimized for long-haul subsea applications. The groundbreaking performance of ICE4 technology incorporates unique technologies to boost capacity-reach performance including digitally synthesized Nyquist subcarriers, enhanced pre- and post-dispersion compensation, improved non-linear tolerance and SD-FEC gain sharing which is only possible with dual-channel DSPs like Infinera’s. These capabilities collectively support up to 18.2 terabits per second per fiber for distances over 10,000 km, powered by ICE4’s leadership in spectral efficiency.

    “This is an impressive achievement that far surpasses what we expected. Infinera has distinguished itself as an industry leader in delivering outstanding subsea optical performance,” said Larry W. Schwartz, Chairman and CEO, Seaborn Networks. “The Infinera XTS-3300 meshponders deliver industry-leading performance over Seabras-1 and validate Infinera's technology leadership in subsea transmission. The capacity upgrade maximizes our return on investment and further underscores the uniqueness of Seaborn’s capacity on Seabras-1.”

    “We are delighted with the performance of the XTS-3300 and the Infinite Capacity Engine 4 for subsea applications. The XTS-3300 delivers industry leading capacity-reach performance for our subsea customers where spectral efficiency is paramount and bandwidth demand is growing at more than 45 percent per year,” said Dave Welch, President and Co-Founder, Infinera. “Infinera delivers unparalleled optical performance, helping to enable the success of our customers as they transform their subsea networks to cloud scale.”

    Seaborn já planeja cabo submarino entre Brasil e África


    A operadora de cabos submarinos Seaborn Networks mal ativou o Seabras-1, que liga diretamente São Paulo a Nova York, e já planeja a adição de mais um ramal ao circuito.|
    A próxima etapa do projeto prevê conectar a Cidade do Cabo, na África do Sul, a São Paulo.

    Em entrevista a Tele.Síntese, o CEO da empresa, Larry Schwartz, afirmou que vai levar a proposta de criação do link entre os continentes a investidores e possíveis clientes da África do Sul ainda este ano. A estratégia é criar uma rota alternativa. Atualmente, o tráfego da África passa pelo Oriente Médio, Ásia ou Europa antes de chegar aos Estados Unidos.

    Enquanto isso, a Seaborn foca na construção de outros ramais do Seabras-1 que já estava nos planos da companhia. O ARBR, que ligará São Paulo à praia de Las Toninas, na Argentina, deve abrir concorrência para escolha do instalador e dos fornecedores no próximo mês, para tornar o trecho operacional até o final de 2018.

    O Seabras-1 também terá chegadas no Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza, cidades do Caribe, da Flórida e do Canadá, lembra o executivo. Mas, segundo ele, o cabo manterá sua principal características: de ser uma rota direta entre São Paulo e Nova York.

    “O cabo manterá o link direto entre as cidades. Os ramais não vão funcionar como paradas, como acontece com outros cabos submarinos”, avisa.


    O executivo gosta de destacar que o cabo é o único a ligar as duas cidades, sem qualquer desvio o interrupção. O motivo reside em sua carteira de clientes. Além de outras operadoras e empresas de tecnologias (como Sparkle, do grupo Telecom Italia, que contratou três pares de fibra, e a TATA Consultancy Services), o Seabras-1 já está em uso por empresas do mercado financeiro que negociam ações quase em tempo real.

    Para atender a este mercado que o cabo foi construído de olho na baixa latência. A diferença de um segundo na compra ou na venda de um lote de ações pode representar ganho ou perda de milhões.

    “Por isso nossa rede não apenas chega em Praia Grande, como segue pelo subterrâneo, que é muito mais seguro e à prova de intempéries que o uso de postes, até o a região de Alphaville [Barueri], praticamente ao lado do data center de B3 [novo nome da Bovespa]”, diz.

    Segundo ele, a latência do cabo varia entre 105,16 ms e 106,62 ms, de acordo com a aplicação usada e o POP de entrada e saída do tráfego. “Geralmente os concorrentes não se sentem confortáveis para publicar a latência. Mas nós sabemos que temos números mais baixos”, afirma.

    O novo cabo não sofreu nenhuma avaria nem passou por instabilidade em função da temporada de furacões que afetam o Caribe no momento. Schwartz diz que empresa decidiu não ter landing stations no Caribe e na Flórida justamente para evitar que o mal tempo pudesse afetar seu funcionamento.


    O Seabras-1 inaugura o uso de várias tecnologias em cabos submarinos. É o primeiro do mundo a usar a chamada SeaSpeed, solução proprietária, criada pela própria Seaborn, para acelerar a troca de dados entre clientes financeiros.

    Também é a mais longa conexão iluminada pela Infinera, e a primeira com a tecnologia ICE4 da fabricante. Segundo a Infinera, a ICE4 é uma solução fotônica capaz multiplicar a eficiência espectral das fibras ópticas, mas ocupa um espaço pequeno, menor que um armário, na landing station.

    Os testes mais bem-sucedidos das empresas, usando modulação 8QAM, atingiram velocidades de conexão de 4,5 bits por segundo por hertz, ao longo dos 10,6 mil Km de extensão do cabo. Segundo as empresa, isso é 50% mais eficiente que tecnologias usadas em outros cabos. Ao final das contas, o Seabras-1 consegue transmitir 18,2 terabits por segundo por par de fibra. O cabo tem capacidade total de 72 Tbps.

    A Infinera também forneceu a solução de rede definida por software, pela qual o usuário é capaz de contratar mais banda conforme a demanda, em um modelo que ambas as empresas estão chamando de “pay as you grow”.

    “Se uma operadora ou outra empresa precisa de mais banda, o sistema é capaz de liberar em 30 minutos. Até hoje, o padrão da indústria é uma espera de cerca de 24 horas”, diz Andres Madero, diretor para a América Latina da Infinera.
