Seaborn Networks and IOX Cable Ltd have entered into a joint-provisioning agreement to provide the first next-generation subsea fiber-optic route between the U.S and India that will interconnect in South Africa and Brazil.

Once completed, the project will connect Seaborn Networks’ Seabras-1, a subsea system between New York – São Paulo, and SABR, a new subsea system to be built between Cape Town, South Africa and Seabras-1, to IOX Cable’s IOX Cable System, the first next-generation subsea network interconnecting South Africa, Mauritius and India. The SABR and IOX Cable systems are expected to begin service in 2019.

“We are extremely pleased to work with IOX to provide this unique and highly secure route,” said Larry Schwartz, Chairman & CEO of Seaborn Networks. “This alliance will reshape the global communications landscape for the Southern Hemisphere.”

The Seabras-1 + SABR + IOX System route will be available exclusively through Seaborn Networks and IOX Cable. Customers can contract through either company to receive the full benefits of this alliance.
