Zayo lands largest capacity wavelengths deal
Zayo Group Holdings has signed a deal for the company’s largest amount of capacity sold on any route in a single deal.
The deal will give the customers approximately 5Tbps of capacity to connect to key data centre.
“Our customers are no longer talking gigabits -- they’re talking terabits on multiple diverse routes,” said Julia Robin, senior vice president of Transport at Zayo. “Zayo’s owned infrastructure, scalable capacity on unique routes and ability to turn up services quickly positions us to be the provider of choice for high-capacity infrastructure.”
Global data consumption is expected to increase to 175Zbps by 2025, therefore demand for infrastructure capacity continues to accelerate. This trend is especially prevalent among webscale, content and cloud providers that require diverse, high-capacity, highly reliable connectivity between their data centres. As such, more are turning to dedicated, high-capacity wavelength solutions.
Zayo’s extensive wavelength network provides dedicated bandwidth to major data centres, carrier hotels, cable landing stations and enterprise locations across our long-haul and metro networks.
Earlier this month, the company announced a number of new investments in Europe, specially the Netherlands.
Due to the 20% growth in the Netherlands, according to the Dutch Data Centre Association (DDA), demand for fibre connectivity has also accelerated. In response, Zayo is connecting key sites in the metro area as well as in Rotterdam.
Firstly, Zayo built out its fibre network to Edgeconnex EDCAMS01. This centre is located in Schiphol-Rijk, just outside Amsterdam and located close to Amsterdam’s international airport. Staying in the Schiphol-Rijk area, the company will also connect Maincubes AMSO1 and Interxion AMS3 via new fibre. Zayo has also expanded its fibre footprint in the Rotterdam area to connect to the NLDC SmartDC datacenter and also to the MediaPark in Hilversum.
Additionally, Zayo’s subsea Circe North cable lands in the Netherlands in Zandvoort and Amsterdam itself sits right on top Zayo’s long haul fibre network providing high-speed access to London/Manchester/Dublin, Rotterdam/Brussels/Paris and Dusseldorf/Frankfurt.
“Amsterdam’s development as an IT hub for the Benelux countries continues at pace with locations such as Schiphol-Rijk and Hilversum rapidly making names for themselves in the data centre and media space respectively,” said Marco Bes, business development director for Zayo in the Netherlands. “Zayo’s expanding fibre network in the Netherlands is well-placed to give companies access to its global platform covering Europe, North America, South America and the Far East.”
