Zayo to provide 100G wavelength connectivity
BOULDER, Colo. – April 7, 2017 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by a leading colocation provider for a wavelengths network to connect its facilities in the U.S. Zayo will provide a high-performance 100G wavelength solution connecting its data centers that will serve as the company’s backbone. The solution leverages Zayo’s existing fiber network, including recently acquired network from Electric Lightwave.
Resilient, secure, high-speed connectivity is a critical requirement for optimal data center performance. Increasingly, data center providers are investing to upgrade their interconnect solutions, as the risk of poor performance or downtime can be damaging and costly.
“Zayo’s expansive long haul wavelength network will enable this customer to significantly upgrade its network to accommodate current workloads, new traffic and future growth,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Network Solutions at Zayo. “Our dense fiber assets and ability to meet strict diversity requirements for every route were the key differentiators.”
