A global CSP has selected Zayo to Enable 100G Wavelength solution to connect data centers in key markets.
A global cloud service provider has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. for a wavelength solution to provide full diversity for a portion of its backbone network.
Zayo will provide three 100G wavelengths on four routes connecting the providers’ data centers in four of the top markets across the U.S. The route fully leverages Zayo’s existing network, including acquired network from Electric Lightwave, with capital required only for equipment.
“The ability for this provider to offer very high levels of uptime to their customers is central to its value proposition,” said Andrew Crouch, Zayo’s president and COO. “These fully diverse, high-performance routes will help ensure full network availability, preventing costly, damaging downtime.”
According to Gartner, the overall global cloud services market is forecast to grow 18 percent this year, with annual double digit growth driving the total market to approximately $383 billion by 2020. In addition to expanding their offerings, cloud service providers are increasingly upgrading their networks to diverse, high-performance fiber.
