Telecommunications Company Selects Zayo for Dark Fiber

Posted by Admin | January 9, 2017 | Telecoms

A major U.S. telecommunications company has selected Zayo for dark fiber infrastructure between Memphis and the greater New Orleans area. The solution leverages Zayo’s existing network, acquired from 360 networks, with no additional construction required.

The dark fiber is part of the carrier’s upgrade to higher capacity fiber across its network. The 20-year IRU provides the carrier with fiber along Zayo’s unique southeastern route, a critical communications infrastructure corridor.

Carriers and cable companies continue to add fiber infrastructure to their networks to increase capacity and improve latency, essential for higher bandwidth communications and applications. According to the USTelecom Association, the U.S. wireline industry continues to make significant investment to expand and upgrade broadband infrastructure for consumers and businesses, with investment in 2015 exceeding $75 billion.

“This long-term transaction extends our relationship with an important customer,” said Jacob Fuller, vice president of Dark Fiber Solutions, Southeast Region at Zayo. “It’s an excellent example of the favorable economics of our business model: fully leveraging our in-place network to generate value for our customers and shareholders.”
