Ad Tech Company Selects Zayo for Connectivity


A global ad tech company that provides targeted advertising for major global brands has selected Zayo for dark fiber and wavelength connectivity. The solution leverages Zayo’s U.S. and European networks, including recently acquired assets from Viatel.

Zayo will provide a high-performance 100G wavelength solution connecting data centers in Europe and the U.S. that will serve as the company’s backbone. The dark fiber component includes a route on Zayo’s dense metro fiber in northern California connecting a data center to a key office location.

“This customer is scaling rapidly and needs a high-capacity network to support the full scope of its operations,” said Chris Morley, COO at Zayo. “Our deep fiber infrastructure assets, global capabilities, European-based customer operations and ability to turn our solutions up quickly over our in-place network were key factors in the win.”

Over the past decade, ad tech has disrupted the traditional advertising industry, with a model that utilizes programmatic platforms, big data and advanced analytics to deliver individually targeted advertising. Zayo’s capabilities are well positioned to meet the growing infrastructure requirements of the industry, which include high-capacity, low-latency infrastructure to process large volumes of data in real time.
