Features & Benefits

Wavelengths are ideal for customers who require very high bandwidth optical transport to support business-critical domestic and international solutions and applications.

  • Multiple management choices: Zayo offers Unprotected Wavelengths (a point-to-point unprotected circuit), Diverse Wavelengths (two Unprotected Wavelengths with physically diverse routing), and Protected Wavelengths (Diverse Wavelengths where Zayo provides the optical protection switching).
  • Superior, predictable Wavelength performance: Zayo’s Wavelength services use our own fiber network as the foundation. Wavelengths are high availability services that support full line-rate transmission provisioned over defined fiber routes for consistent latency and low jitter.
  • Room to grow: Customers can choose bandwidth options from 10Gbps to 400Gbps and higher.
  • Security: Dedicated point-to-point service over a defined physical and logical path is transparent to higher-level protocols and provides security control over data assets.
  • Protection against outage: Zayo’s 16 million miles of fiber can offer diverse fiber routing, often over fiber routes unique to Zayo.
  • Compliance: Protocols supported include Ethernet, Optical Transport Network (OTN), Storage Area Network (SAN), Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET), Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH), Video, and others.
