Deal includes Singapore point of presence, which will expand Zayo’s global capabilities
BOULDER, Colo. – July 8, 2016 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by a global cloud communications provider to connect the company’s nine data centers in the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific region. As part of the three-year agreement, Zayo will establish a new point of presence (PoP) in Singapore. With the anchor tenant secured, Zayo will leverage strong customer demand in the region to drive follow-on sales.
Zayo will leverage its existing global infrastructure, which includes the recently acquired Viatel assets, to connect the anchor tenant’s data centers over an IP network. The end-to-end virtual private network (IP-VPN) will be delivered over Zayo’s fiber backbone and supports secure, high-performance connectivity between the data centers.
“The solution reduces the customer’s network complexity and enables them to scale for future growth,” said Bruce Garrison, senior director of Global Reach at Zayo. “Singapore is one of the dominant hubs in the region and among the most interconnected markets in the world. We expect to leverage the PoP for existing and prospective customers who want an expanded presence in Asia.”
Over the past year, Zayo has acquired significant new network assets in Europe and Canada and expanded its global reach to 37 countries.
