Seaborn Builds US-Brazil Undersea Cable with ALU

Alcatel-Lucent kicked off construction of US-Brazil subsea cable for Seaborn Networks.  A turnkey installation agreement is in force for the six-fiber pair Seabras-1 system, which will boast an initial maximum design capacity of 60 Terabits per second.

“We look forward to continuing to work closely with Alcatel-Lucent during the manufacturing and build stage of this project,” said Larry Schwartz, Seaborn’s Chief Executive Officer. “And we are most appreciative of our customers who have enabled us to achieve this important milestone so as to ensure a ready-for-service date in 2016.”

The Alcatel-Lucent solution to be deployed for this project includes an integrated 100G wet plant of cable and high bandwidth repeaters, power feed equipment, and its 1620 Light Manager (LM) submarine line terminal
equipped with advanced coherent technology and offering unique flexibility to increase direct connectivity between countries.
