Capacity and Latency: International Carrier Taps Zayo for Dark Fiber in Europe


An international carrier has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. for a pan-European dark fiber backbone. The dark fiber solution includes a nearly 3,500 route-mile network with dozens of ILA stations, connecting four major European markets.

It leverages Zayo’s in-place network in the U.K. and Western Europe. The solution supports the carrier’s European expansion, providing capacity and latency advantages.

The carrier connects to Zayo’s network via subsea cables in Marseille, a strategic gateway and intercontinental aggregation point. Zayo provides diverse fiber routes from Marseille that connect to Paris, Frankfurt, London and other European markets. Zayo announced last year that the company offers three fully diverse network routes out of Marseille, facilitating resilient fiber options across Western Europe.

“Zayo has a growing track record of helping carriers expand globally,” said Annette Murphy, managing director, Zayo Europe. “This is a significant win, which we were awarded because of our high level of service and the strength of our European network footprint, which enables the carrier to connect and expand to all major markets.”
