India-based Tata Communications has secured a deal to add a Brazilian link to its international network, via a deal with subsea cable startup Seaborn Networks.
 
The companies revealed  that Tata Comm has arranged to be an anchor tenant customer for the upcoming Seabras-1 cable linking the US with Sao Paulo, Brazil.
 
The Seabras-1 is a 32 Tbps subsea cable system scheduled for activation in 2014.
 
Tata Comm will use the link to provide network services from Brazil to its networks in the US, Europe, Africa and Asia.
 
Tata Comm CEO Vinod Kumar said the deal will “ensure we have the fastest route between Brazil's major commercial center and the US, [and will] align us with the most viable new subsea project in one of the fastest growing markets in the world.”
 
Pioneer Consulting estimates that demand for international subsea cable capacity in Latin America will swell to over 32 Tbps by 2020.
 
In March, Tata Comm launched new subsea cables in Eurasia and the Gulf, completing its round-the-world fiber ring
 
TeleGeography estimates that $5.5 billion will be spent on subsea cable networks in 2012 and 2013, up from $3.7 billion in 2010-11.
