Customer to leverage Zayo wavelengths and dark fiber
BOULDER, Colo. – May 3, 2016 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO), has been selected by a leading cloud storage provider for metro dark fiber and wavelengths services. The solution will leverage existing network from prior success-based capital projects, including new segments with committed tenants, which are currently under construction.
Zayo’s metro dark fiber in Dallas is providing the company with a three node ring in the Dallas metro area to connect its data centers that will provide critical network diversity. The wavelengths solution will provide eight 100G routes, creating a ring between the Bay Area, Seattle, Chicago and Dallas. The solution will provide a diverse ring in the western U.S. and double the customer’s network capacity.
Consumers, small businesses and large enterprises continue to migrate more of their storage and workload to cloud providers. These providers are upgrading their capacity and improving their networks to meet the growing demand, which is expected to accelerate in the the coming years.
“Zayo is ideally positioned to meet the infrastructure needs of web-scale companies,” said Max Clauson, executive vice president of Network Connectivity Services at Zayo. “By leveraging our fiber networks in multiple cities and fiber routes between cities, and by incorporating our product portfolio of dark fiber solutions and lit services, we were able to provide a streamlined, efficient solution for the customer.”
