13 Aug Zayo completes Los Angeles to Dallas fiber optic route
The company secures multiple dark fiber anchor tenants; introduces diverse wavelengths on route
BOULDER, Colo. – August 9, 2018 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) today announced that it has completed its long haul dark fiber route between Los Angeles and Dallas. The route complements Zayo’s existing long haul network, enabling diverse connectivity between major west coast data center markets to Dallas, one of the largest data center and interconnection markets in the U.S.
Zayo secured an anchor tenant and began development of the 2,000-mile route in 2015, which included upgrades and new construction. Since construction began, Zayo has secured multiple additional dark fiber and wavelengths anchor tenants on the route, supporting return on investment for the strategic project.
Zayo will offer its full range of high-performance connectivity solutions across the route, enabling 100G wavelengths service later this month. The new wavelengths route will be diverse from other existing carrier networks and from Zayo’s existing routes, and will enable unique options between Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Tucson, El Paso, Ft. Worth and Dallas. Customer demand is strong, with commitments already in place.
“Zayo is committed to success-based investments in our network, and this expansion will help meet the high-bandwidth demands across many industries,” said Jack Waters, CTO and president of Fiber Solutions at Zayo. “We continue to collaborate with key customers and construct critical strategic routes to ensure the availability of high-performance fiber and infrastructure.”
