BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zayo Group Holdings Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) announced that it has completed a coherent wavelength route from Marseille to Strasbourg via Milan. The route, which also provides connectivity to Paris, Frankfurt, London and Amsterdam, leverages Zayo’s European fiber network acquired from Viatel.
Initial customers include an India-based carrier, which selected Zayo for a 100G wavelength solution on this route, with connectivity from Marseille to Amsterdam. The solution will enable the carrier to extend and harden its network into Europe, with diverse connectivity from these two global gateway cities. Additional customers committed to this route include a U.S.-based global Internet services provider and an international wholesale telecommunications provider.
The route is part of Zayo’s expansion of its dark fiber and longhaul wavelength network in Europe. Zayo now has several 100G and dark fiber routes out of Marseille, a city that serves as a strategic gateway and key aggregation point between Europe, Africa and Asia via subsea cables.
“With our expanded capability, we are well-positioned to meet the needs of a growing base of global customers,” said Randy Dunbar, senior vice president, Transport. “Our connectivity options in and out of Marseille are opening up new international markets for us, and we continue to see strong demand from multiple verticals.”
