BOULDER, Colo.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--A major communications and media company has selected Zayo for long haul dark fiber connectivity in the Northeast. The solution, which is fully on-net, requires limited capital expenditure and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017. The total contract is valued at approximately nine million dollars.
“Zayo can ensure specific fiber paths so customers can receive true network diversity from one provider”
The sale includes a four-fiber route from a data center in the Northeast, to the company’s operations center in the same region. It will provide diverse high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity, designed to prevent costly, customer-impacting downtime.
Increasingly, carriers, content and media companies rely on network diversity as a key element of business continuity strategy. To ensure uninterrupted service in the event of a network disruption, customers need back-up networks with diverse connectivity from their primary networks.
“Zayo can ensure specific fiber paths so customers can receive true network diversity from one provider,” said Anthony Lingis, vice president, Dark Fiber Solutions, Northeast Region at Zayo. “With the scope and density of our network, we are well positioned to provide diverse connectivity for both dark and lit solutions.”
