Deal includes new Hong Kong PoP that will further expand Zayo’s APAC presence
BOULDER, Colo. – January 31, 2017 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by an international law firm to connect key locations in the U.S., Europe and Asia. As part of the three-year agreement for a global Ethernet solution, Zayo will establish a new point of presence (PoP) in Hong Kong. With the anchor tenant secured, Zayo will leverage strong customer demand in the region to drive follow-on sales.
The E-LAN solution will provide interoffice connectivity between four major markets in Asia, two in Europe and six in the U.S. The solution leverages Zayo’s existing global infrastructure, providing the customer with a secure, fully redundant, low-latency network. Law firms are increasingly turning to dedicated, high-capacity fibre to accommodate large digital files, provide video conferencing capability and support remote depositions.
“Hong Kong is among the world’s leading commercial capitals and the gateway to Chinese markets for many multinational enterprises. We expect to leverage the PoP for existing and prospective customers who want an expanded presence in Asia as we’ve done successfully in Singapore,” said Bruce Garrison, vice president of Global Reach at Zayo. “The ability for Zayo to provide a unified solution across three continents was a competitive differentiator.”
Over the past year, Zayo has acquired significant new network assets in North America and Europe and expanded its global reach to 40 countries. In addition, Zayo recently announced a PoP in Singapore.
