Seaborn Networks is expanding its shared spectrum services in the Americas.

The submarine cable systems operator operates two high-capacity open cable systems, Seabras-1 and AMX-1, with connections between Brazil and the U.S. offering a range of managed digital services and wavelength services. It has selected Infinera’s ICE6 800G coherent technology to help deliver 400GbE services, including the option for direct PoP-to-PoP transport. 

The Smart Spectrum feature within Infinera’s Intelligent Power Management (IPM) solution allows Seaborn to offer multiple virtual fibre pairs to its customers so they can take advantage of open cable demarcation, while being protected from the kind of potential optical power instability that can be caused by other tenants on the same fibre pair. The solution is planned to enable Seaborn to enhance its network to deliver maximum capacity at the longest reach and offer enhanced service flexibility, while reducing operating costs and delivering savings it can pass on to its customers.

Paul Cannon, vice president of network development at Seaborn said: ‘Seaborn is delighted to be side by side with Infinera as our technology partner as we move the needle once again in service delivery capabilities for the Americas. Once Infinera’s ICE6 technology is deployed on our network this summer, Seaborn will be positioned to deliver industry-leading 400GbE PoP-to-PoP services at distances over 10,000km.’
