BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
A global webscale company has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (ZAYO) to implement a network to connect its data centers in Dublin and Amsterdam. The wavelength solution will be deployed on a direct route unique to Zayo, which bypasses the traffic clusters of London.
The route, which leverages acquired assets from Geo Networks and Viatel, connects Dublin and continental Europe with a strategic fiber route.
“In this case, our long-standing customer needs multiple terabytes of throughput on a direct route,” said Andrew Crouch, president and COO at Zayo. “It’s an excellent illustration of leveraging our embedded network to provide the customer with a solution that meets their capacity needs.”
Zayo continues to see strong demand in Europe for dedicated, high-capacity networks, in both dark fiber and wavelength form, from global companies in multiple sectors. The route that bypasses London is attractive to content and media companies, carriers, financial firms and multinational corporations.
“This new network will provide our anchor customer with high-capacity bandwidth along a highly strategic route,” said Crouch. “Given the importance of this route, we expect a robust funnel of sales opportunities.”
