Stable ground for smart production

Manufacturing is experiencing a digital transformation with robotics and the massive data it generates being increasingly woven into a complex production process. These systems have the potential to deliver incredible operational efficiencies, yet a fully connected production and supply chain can’t happen without the network — and security — to support it.

Zayo has the fiber backbone and full suite of network solutions to support the complex connectivity needs of your smart factory. We can get you to the edge and manage your edge-to-anywhere strategy, lowering costs and ensuring security along the way with our manufacturing technology.

Automation anywhere and everywhere

As production becomes more technological, you need the network to support it. Spread the bandwidth across your production grid, warehouses and office spaces. Our SD-WAN, Ethernet and Wavelength services help you save money, increase efficiency and meet the labor gap.

Smart at the edge

Access applications and real time data for your IoT production devices. Our turnkey 5G and small cell deployments, enabled by SD-WAN and SASE, ensures you remain connected to make your factory floor more efficient.

Manage exposure from more connected devices

The more devices you have connected, the more susceptible you are to costly security breaches in your network. Zayo’s DDoS Protection service helps prevent attacks before they impact your business. Zayo’s IP VPN can connect your entire manufacturing ecosystem, but logically separates traffic where you need to, providing you with the inherent security of a private connection.


Modernize and remain agile

Link factories and sites to each other, the Cloud, your data centers, and the edge with Zayo’s SD-WAN. Zayo provides you a fully-managed, secure, highly performant solution that can flex with changing needs, connect all sites optimally to the Cloud and ensure that mission-critical applications run effectively, even with traffic congestion. All with minimal investment.

Dark Fiber

Fortify your infrastructure

When your network can handle the massive data flow from vour devices, vour manufacturing performance improves. Zayo’s low latency, highly reliable 16 million miles of fiber provide virtually unlimited bandwidth for your critical applications, your loT devices on production sites, and the data analytics from your equipment’s Al automation.

DDoS Protection

Stop attacks before they impact your business

Manufacturing companies are facing more DDoS attacks than ever before. Keep factories running around the clock _ Zayo’s network-based DDoS Protection stops attacks before they impact your business.


Securing your data and processes at the edge

Zayo’s SASE service protects your offices, factories, and data centers with a scalable solution protecting against threats from the Internet, Cloud, and partner networks. SASE takes network-based protection to your very users at the edge of your network.
