Zayo to provide fiber-optic network services for global cloud communications provider

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) says it will provide fiber-optic network services to a global cloud communications services provider it declined to identify further to connect nine data centers in the U.S., Europe, and Asia Pacific region. To fulfill the three-year data center interconnect agreement, Zayo will create a new point of presence (PoP) in Singapore, which it hopes use to attract additional business from other customers.

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) says it will provide fiber-optic network services to a global cloud communications services provider it declined to identify further to connect nine data centers in the U.S., Europe, and Asia Pacific region. To fulfill the three-year data center interconnect agreement, Zayo will create a new point of presence (PoP) in Singapore, which it hopes use to attract additional business from other customers.

Zayo says it will create an end-to-end virtual private network (IP-VPN) it will support using its existing global fiber infrastructure, including assets it recently added when it acquired Viatel (see "Zayo reshuffles, agrees to buy Viatel").

"The solution reduces the customer’s network complexity and enables them to scale for future growth," said Bruce Garrison, senior director of Global Reach at Zayo. "Singapore is one of the dominant hubs in the region and among the most interconnected markets in the world. We expect to leverage the PoP for existing and prospective customers who want an expanded presence in Asia."

Zayo says it now can provide connectivity to 37 countries.
