High-capacity route will connect two key European regions
BOULDER, Colo. – November 21, 2018 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) was selected by a major webscale company for a wavelength solution to provide capacity between two of the company’s data centres in Europe. The solution will be deployed on a direct route owned and operated by Zayo, tailored to the customer’s exact requirements.
The route, which leverages acquired assets from Viatel, will provide a key portion of the company’s core network in Europe. Zayo continues to see continued demand in Europe for high-capacity networks, in both dark fibre and wavelength form, from global companies in multiple sectors.
“Zayo’s owned infrastructure was a major differentiator in winning this business,” said Annette Murphy, Zayo’s managing director of Europe. “We are able to provide very high-capacity connectivity and deploy it very quickly for the customer.”
“In this case, our long-standing customer needs terabytes of throughput on a direct route,” said Randy Dunbar, president of Transport at Zayo. “It’s an excellent illustration of leveraging our embedded network to provide the customer with a solution that meets their capacity needs.”
