Consolidated Smart Systems, one of the largest private broadband providers in California, has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. for a dark fiber solution to enhance and expand their broadband service capabilities to multiple dwelling unit (MDU) communities in Southern California.
The deal will expand Zayo’s existing fiber footprint in the Los Angeles metro area, bringing it within proximity of several high-profile clients and additional prospects.
The solution consists of approximately 190 miles of dark fiber, which includes existing network and new build. Zayo will manage the infrastructure, providing a private dedicated network (PDN) that will start with 10G Ethernet services to each location.
The network will enable Consolidated Smart Systems to provide gigabit service at a highly competitive price point. In total, Zayo will enable Consolidated Smart Systems to provide its portfolio with high-performance, “always on” internet.
“High-speed internet is one of the differentiating amenities for residents,” said Dan Terheggen, CEO at Consolidated Smart Systems. “Zayo’s flexible solution will enable us to offer high-performance broadband for current residents and provide the infrastructure to scale. No one in California will be able to match our speed and price. We are excited to work with Zayo and look forward to the relationship growing over the next few years.”
“We are able to offer Consolidated Smart Systems the benefits of both a lit network to meet their short-term needs and dark fiber, which includes nearly unlimited bandwidth and provides the ability to scale meet longer-term needs,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. “As a communications infrastructure provider, this solution is designed and priced to provide benefits to Consolidated Smart Systems that traditional telecommunications companies simply cannot offer.”
