LOUISVILLE, Colo. – December 11, 2012 – Zayo Group announces its implementation of 100G wavelength services across major markets in the US. The 100G wavelength platform is already operational in some locations and will continue to be deployed during the rest of 2012 and into the first half of 2013.
By upgrading long-haul and metro market networks, Zayo can provide native 100G wavelength connectivity to key traffic aggregation points and IP nodes throughout the U.S. The 100G expansion will allow Zayo’s customers cost efficient, high bandwidth services between major US markets. 100G wavelength services enable customers to meet the growing bandwidth needs and provide operational and cost efficiencies over previous platforms.
