Solution to provide wavelength and Ethernet connectivity
BOULDER, Colo. – March 24, 2017 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by a multinational retailer for a global wide area network (WAN) solution to accommodate the company’s growing presence in APAC. The solution will provide the customer with a trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific global ring, enabling connectivity across four continents.
The network will include wavelengths and Ethernet connectivity, linking company locations between the U.S. and London, U.S. and Singapore and London and Singapore. It includes dedicated capacity on the new SEA-ME-WE-5 subsea cable system, which connects Southeast Asia to Western Europe. The transaction also leverages Zayo’s recently announced point of presence (PoP) in Singapore.
The solution will enable the customer to move from a fragmented infrastructure supply chain to a highly consolidated approach, eliminating complexity and significantly improving efficiency. “Zayo’s established relationship with the customer and our ability to provide unified services, including a low-latency backbone, were key factors in winning this business,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Network Solutions at Zayo. “The transaction also enables a success-based expansion onto the new subsea cable system, which provides Zayo with dedicated capacity between Asia and Europe.”
Zayo is experiencing strong demand for this route, which spans 16 countries across three continents with the highest capacity and lowest latency available. “Customers benefit from Zayo’s end-to-end global solution that leverages the combination of our strong and growing fiber footprint and carefully negotiated strategic partnerships with local providers. It’s an especially attractive option to a growing number of companies that are expanding their presence in Asia,” said Waters.
