Zayo Adds New Infrastructure in Key International Border Cities
New 100G Points of Presence in McAllen and Laredo will improve connectivity and end-user experience across the U.S. and Latin America
BOULDER, Colo. –
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc., a leading global communications infrastructure platform, today announced the expansion of its infrastructure and Tier 1 IP network into the key border cities of McAllen and Laredo, Texas with two new 100G IP points of presence (PoPs) and 400G Wavelengths capabilities.
Zayo’s expansive fiber network provides connectivity to over 600 global lit PoPs across the U.S. and Europe. With the new PoPs in McAllen and Laredo, Zayo will extend its Tier 1 network with diverse and protected capabilities to enable improved performance and reliability for end-users connecting between the U.S., Mexico, and broader Latin America.
As businesses continue to grow and scale globally, they need a reliable low-latency network to provide consistent performance and experience for end-users. The new PoPs from Zayo will ensure capacity to handle bandwidth-intensive applications and large amounts of data to enable easier cross-border collaboration with high-speed, private and secure connectivity.
“This latest investment is a game changer for cross-border business opportunities,” said Bill Long, Chief Product Officer at Zayo. “With these diverse capabilities, our customers have the added protection they need to ensure their networks will be secure, reliable and most importantly, connected in Latin America.”
The new PoPs are the latest investment from Zayo in expanding its network in Latin America and other key commerce and financial hubs across the globe. In September, the company announced plans to expand its Global Low Latency Network with low-latency routes into São Paulo, Brazil.
Overall, Zayo has invested more than $250 million into expanding its fiber footprint across the globe this year, including the completion of its new long haul routes and subsea fiber route as well as increased capacity and improved latency of its existing network footprint. Zayo’s network now spans 16 million fiber miles and 137,000 route miles with over 250 IP PoPs, more than 30Tb of peering capacity, and 1,400 on-net data centers.
