LOUISVILLE, CO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2012) - Zayo Group announces the completion of the 360networks' long haul network integration. The resulting combined network doubles Zayo's national network reach, providing coast-to-coast connectivity spanning 45,400 route miles in 42 states and over 70 metro markets.
The integration of the two networks links deep metro assets like Denver, Phoenix, Spokane, Las Vegas and others to a broad national footprint for end-to-end connectivity. Interconnect points between the formerly independent networks include the following locations:
- Los Angeles
- Salt Lake City
- Las Vegas
Customers can access the national network across points-of-presence in over 100 markets including smaller markets, such as Bozeman and Butte MT, Hudson OH, Wilkes Barre and Erie PA leveraging Zayo's unique metro fiber assets.
"The 360Networks integration was completed in less than four months," states David Howson, President of Zayo Bandwidth. "An important part of our acquisition strategy is to completely integrate in a timely way while minimizing disruption to our customers. We appreciate the support of our customers, vendors and employees in the smooth execution of this integration."
Completion of this integration allows Zayo to offer IP, Wavelengths and Ethernet across the entire Zayo footprint. Carriers, content providers, media and wireless customers can work with Zayo to design a custom high-bandwidth long haul and metro solutions.
