Large Data Center Provider Selects Zayo for Dark Fiber

Zayo Group (News - Alert) Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by a large data center provider for dark fiber to connect its East Coast data centers. The solution includes primary and diverse routes in New York and New Jersey, providing low-latency infrastructure for the provider.

Zayo's solution consist of more than 30 dark fiber pairs along completely diverse routes for the data center provider. Diverse and low-latency connectivity is a critical requirement for data centers, especially those that serve the financial sector. The solution leverages existing low-latency routes in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan corridor and requires limited buildout.

Increasingly, data centers and webscale cloud providers are focusing on high-performance fiber connectivity as an integral element of their service. High-bandwidth infrastructure facilitates higher data rates, preventing bottlenecks and slow throughput.

"The provider's customers include financial services companies and buy and sell-side firms, which require high capacity and low latency," said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. "Zayo's dark fiber routes provide the speed, security and performance the provider requires, along with the ability to scale."
