This agreement will enable the competitive service provider to give its customers access to a 32 Tbps submarine cable with a direct network route between Sao Paulo, Brazil and the United States.

Seaborn says because it does not have multiple hops along the route it can reduce network latency for financial services firms and other businesses focused on reducing latency and improving route diversity.

For Sidera, the agreement with Seaborn, which will complete its network in Q4 2014, is all about extending its low latency network to services to Sao Paulo, Latin America's largest financial services center.

Already serving a number of domestic and international trading centers, including Boston, Chicago, New Jersey, Toronto, and London, extending its services to Sao Paulo is a logical step to help as it gains a larger presence in the financial services industry.  

Mike Sicoli, Sidera Networks' CEO, said in a release that "When completed, Seaborn's express route from Sao Paulo will enable us to secure for customers what is promised to be the fastest route between the United States and Brazil's major commercial center."
