EdgeConneX says that Seaborn Networks has chosen its Buenos Aires Edge Data Center (EDC) as the point of presence (PoP) in Argentina for Seaborn's ARBR submarine cable.The ARBR submarine cable should be ready for service in 2019, according to EdgeConneX.
Seaborn's ARBR undersea cable enables what EdgeConneX attests is the most direct route connecting Buenos Aires, Argentina with Sao Paulo, Brazil (see "Seaborn Networks chooses Xtera for ARBR submarine network systems"), with onward connectivity to New York through Seaborn's Seabras-1 system (see "Seabras-1 undersea cable system between Brazil and New York nearly ready for service").
The Buenos Aires EDC is a multi-tenant facility providing underserved regions in South America with low-latency content delivery, cloud access, and international interconnectivity in an N+1 facility. The EDCdelivers connectivity and peering consisting of extensive fiber, density, and peering options to customers, as well as an interconnected industry partner community. According to EdgeConneX, the PoP at the EdgeConneX Buenos Aires EDC will provide all EdgeConneX customers with cross-connect options.
"Through the introduction of cutting-edge technology, the Buenos Aires EDC will enhance economic growth throughout the region, and combined with connectivity to Seaborn's ARBR subsea cable, will make Argentina a more attractive location for data investment by enterprises across a wide range of industries both domestically and globally," said Randy Brouckman, EdgeConneX chief executive officer. "As we continue to expand the edge globally in partnership with subsea cable developers and owner-operators such as Seaborn Networks, EdgeConneX enhances the delivery of cloud, content, and network services not only in Buenos Aires but for international organizations seeking to expand business opportunities and connectivity options between North and South America."
Last week, Seaborn Networks requested supply of C+L Band technology from subsea systems technology provider Xtera for the ARBR submarine network (see "Xtera to supply Seaborn Networks with C+L Band technology for ARBR submarine network"). The ARBR submarine network is a 2,700-km open system developed jointly by Seaborn Networks and the Werthein Group.
