Another piece of Seaborn Networks' planned cable to South America keep falling into place. On Monday it was the money, and yesterday it was that the metro fiber specialist Sunesys will be handling the terrestrial backhaul leg in New Jersey.
Seaborn's Seabras-1 system will connect the New York metro area with Sao Paolo with a brancn off to Fortaleza as well. Sunesys will construct a diverse backhaul network between the landing station on the New Jersey shore and the CoreSite and Equinix endpoints.
Sunesys has an extensive New Jersey footprint, although more in the main suburban corridors and not so much along the shore. The backhaul network will come online at the end of 2014, in time for Seabras-1's 2015 launch.
