Customer to leverage dark fiber to implement next-generation healthcare technologies
BOULDER, Colo. – March 24, 2016 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO), has been selected by a large health care provider in the Pacific Northwest for metro dark fiber services. Zayo’s dark fiber will securely connect two primary hospitals and a large medical clinic, enabling the organization to leverage its new electronic health record (EHR) platform. The solution largely leverages existing network acquired through multiple acquisitions and built by prior success-based capital projects.
The digitization of healthcare, including EHR, is generating heavy demand for high-bandwidth solutions, including dark fiber. Zayo is well positioned to benefit from this growth by providing high-performance, secure connectivity and infrastructure over its expansive and unique fiber assets.
“Health care facilities are increasingly turning to dark fiber as it provides the performance and security they require for the types of information they process and transmit,” said Randy Dunbar, senior vice president of Metro Dark Fiber at Zayo. “We expect to achieve a substantial return on the project, which demonstrates our continued ability to leverage existing infrastructure.”
