Zayo Group Holdings is in the midst of expanding its 400G-capable routes worldwide, including significant additional capacity in the United States. The company has also added IP points of presence.
New 400G-capable routes announced during the third quarter are Atlanta to Washington, DC; Denver to Dallas (direct); Clinton to Ponchatoula, LA; Indianapolis to Columbus, OH; Ashburn, VA to Baltimore; Bend to Umatilla, WA and Laurel, MT to Denver.
Zayo also has 400G routes in progress. They are Houston to New Orleans; St. Louis to Chicago; Buffalo to Albany, NY; Buffalo to Toronto; Columbus to Ashburn; Cleveland to Buffalo; Houston to Ponchatoula and Umatilla to Quincy, WA.
During the third quarter, Zayo launched IP points of presence in six US locations: 250 Williams Street NW and 1100 White Street SW, Atlanta; 6477 West Wells Park Road, Salt Lake City; 2335 South Ellis Street, Chandler, AZ; 375 Pearl Street, New York and 626 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles.
Zayo also overbuilt the Omaha to Denver long distance route.
“Next-generation technology is being deployed at never-before-seen rates. This has placed the communications infrastructure industry at a unique inflection point as all digital businesses—enterprises, carriers and hyperscalers alike—scramble to ensure they have enough capacity to support these technologies,” Zayo chief product officer Bill Long said in a press release. “As this trend plays out, it will be a strong tailwind for those providers who can capitalize on the moment. As one of the newest and most modern networks on the market, Zayo is uniquely positioned to support this growing demand for global bandwidth.”
In July, Zayo added a long-haul dark fiber route from St. Louis to Indianapolis. It also overbuilt the Chicago to Omaha route.
