Large transaction significantly increases capacity for long-standing
BOULDER, Colo. –
A global webscale company has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:
ZAYO) for a dark fiber solution to provide additional capacity to
support its data center growth in the Midwest. The solution consists of
more than 500 miles of long haul dark fiber located on a strategic
route. The multimillion-dollar deal utilizes Zayo’s in-place network
that was acquired from FiberLink in 2013.
“In this case, our long-standing customer continues to experience
increasing demand and needed dozens of dark fiber strands on a unique
route,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo.
“It’s another excellent illustration of Zayo’s ability to meet an
accelerating need for capacity over our embedded network.”
Dark fiber infrastructure provides nearly unlimited bandwidth and offers
companies the ability to scale to meet their long-term needs. Leveraging
investments made in this unique Midwestern route over recent years, Zayo
now provides dark fiber connectivity to three major webscale companies,
as well as multi-geography carriers and other enterprise customers in
key verticals. Zayo also sells lit services to a broader customer set
over this route and across its extensive long-haul dark fiber network.
