A global technology company has selected Zayo for a dark fiber solution to connect key markets nationwide. The high-count fiber solution will be deployed in an accelerated time frame, tailored to the customer’s specific requirements.
The contract represents one of the larger long haul dark fiber contracts of 2018.
The solution leverages thousands of miles of Zayo’s extensive dark fiber networks across multiple regions in the U.S., including the recently announced Columbus, Ohio to Ashburn, Virginia and Dallas, Texas to Atlanta, Georgia routes.
“Zayo’s extensive owned dark fiber was a significant competitive advantage in winning this business,” said Phil Mottram, chief customer officer at Zayo. “The company needed the ability to manage their own network that could scale to accommodate continued growth — and dark fiber is the ideal solution. It’s an excellent illustration of leveraging our embedded Zayo network for the benefit of this important customer.”
