Multinational Bank Selects Zayo for Integrated Infrastructure Solution
Multi-product solution includes dark fiber, wavelengths and colocation
BOULDER, Colo. –
A U.S.-based multinational bank has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc.
(NYSE: ZAYO) for an integrated infrastructure solution. The solution,
which includes dark fiber, colocation and wavelengths, will support the
bank’s initiative to upgrade its national infrastructure.
The colocation solution at a zColo data center in the western U.S. will
serve as an interconnection hub for the customer. Dark fiber routes from
the data center, over existing Zayo network, will connect to the bank’s
core data centers in the area. In addition, a high-capacity wavelength
solution will also be deployed, providing long-haul connectivity between
nine markets across the U.S.
The trendlines for global banks and financial services companies reflect
the move to fiber-based solutions for their bandwidth-intensive
functions, including secure file sharing, large file transfers, business
intelligence applications and data analysis. In this case, the bank is
expanding its infrastructure, ensuring geographic diversity of its data
centers and physical diversity of its network.
“Zayo’s unique ability to bring together all aspects of a North American
infrastructure solution, including dark fiber, data centers and
high-capacity, diverse wavelengths, was a deciding factor in this win,”
said Randy Dunbar, president of Transport at Zayo. “The solution
delivers all the baseline components providing the ability for the bank
to continue to scale their network across a broad geography.”
The sale is an illustration of Zayo’s financial services vertical team
deepening its relationships with existing customers in the sector.
