EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure brings Zayo’s dark fiber to its Silicon Valley campus

Zayo to provide low-latency connectivity for EdgeCore's customers.

EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure, a wholesale data center developer, owner, and operator, has tapped Zayo’s dark fiber solutions to connect its Silicon Valley data center campus in Santa Clara, CA. The data center provider will get access to Zayo’s global network, enabling it to provide its customers resilient, diverse fiber routes for current use and future expansion.

By gaining access to Zayo’s Tier-1 fiber network—including over 200 IP points of presence (PoPs) across the United States—customers at EdgeCore's Silicon Valley campus will have access to fast, diverse, and reliable connectivity with guaranteed bandwidth to support their business needs.

Zayo's future-ready network infrastructure accommodates EdgeCore customers' evolving needs for scale, rapid deployment of additional bandwidth, cloud connectivity and customer end-point connectivity.

"The scale of EdgeCore's campus is made more valuable for customers with the addition of Zayo's future-proofed network and global reach,” said Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer for EdgeCore.

This agreement comes as EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure expands its data center presence across multiple markets.

In January, EdgeCore announced the groundbreaking of its Silicon Valley data center campus. Upon completion, the LEED-designed campus will support 72 MW of load across 540,000 square feet of space. In April, EdgeCore also announced the expansion of its Phoenix data center campus in Mesa, Arizona, for which Zayo also provides connectivity.
