New subsea route between US, India via Brazil, South Africa

Seaborn Networks and IOX Cable have entered into a joint provisioning agreement to provide the first next-generation subsea fibre optic route between the US and India that will interconnect in South Africa and Brazil.
This path connecting the US with three BRICS countries and Mauritius will provide the most secure and reliable route between these markets by providing fewer hops through fewer countries than existing alternative routes.

Seaborn is the developer-owner-operator of: Seabras-1, the most direct subsea system between New York - São Paulo; ARBR, reportedly the only new direct subsea system planned to be built between Brazil - Argentina (RFS Q4 2018); and SABR, a new subsea system between Cape Town, South Africa and Seabras-1 (RFS 2019).

IOX is the developer of the IOX Cable System, the first next-generation subsea network interconnecting South Africa, Mauritius and India (RFS 2019). IOX have commenced work for the cable route survey, and once completed will provide a direct route between South Africa and India via Mauritius. Seaborn's SABR and the IOX System will interconnect in South Africa.
