Wavelength solution includes diverse long haul and metro backhaul
BOULDER, Colo. – April 26, 2018 – A next-generation transportation services company has selected Zayo Group Holdings (NYSE: ZAYO) for wavelengths to connect a new data centre in a major metropolitan area with its data centres on both coasts. The solution includes diverse metro connectivity along with 100G long haul wavelengths capacity.
The network will extend the provider’s network, supporting its core business functions, corporate IT and research and development. The routes are designed to provide geographic diversity and bypass existing points of failure — providing resilient infrastructure with proximity to the edge to better support their customer base.
Optical wavelengths provide dedicated, high-capacity bandwidth with predictable low latency with no requirement for the customer to make a large upfront capital investment to stand up their network infrastructure.
“Our solution, which includes diverse long haul and metro wavelengths over unique assets, provided a significant advantage in winning this business in a dynamic and rapidly expanding market,” said Randy Dunbar, senior vice president, Transport. “The customer required a solution that could scale to accommodate continued innovation and growth. Zayo is well-positioned to provide them the solutions that meet their specific needs — and more broadly, to meet the growing communications infrastructure demand in this emerging sector.”
