GlobeNet joins AMS-IX USA for pan-American connectivity

Data network services wholesale provider – or carrier of carriers – GlobeNethas become a partner of AMS-IX USA, the US subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), to improve connectivity between North and South America, AMS said in a statement.

By joining the AMS-IX USA Partner Program, Globenet will be able to remotely connect North American and Latin American customers to peer with parties on the AMS-IX New York peering platform and enhance their IP service offering, according to AMS.

GlobeNet's partnership allows it to serve as a certified AMS-IX partner, offering customers lower cost access to large internet players, AMS said.

GlobeNet's network provides extensive coverage in South America, including Bermuda, Colombia, Venezuela and many Points of Presence (PoPs) in Brazil, as well as in the US.

The company also owns and operates a submarine cable network that spans more than 23,500km. GlobeNet is a fully-owned subsidiary of Brazil's investment bank BTG Pactual.

"With its extensive network reach, GlobeNet serves as a gateway to new US cities, as well as South America and Brazil, one of the region's largest internet markets," AMS-IX CEO Job Witteman said.

In February, GlobeNet opened a new office in one of the most connected buildings in Brazil, Rio's RB1. The company also deployed a new PoP in the Rio de Janeiro building, featuring several network paths to its submarine cable system.
