Zayo chooses Cyan for Manhattan network upgrade

Packet-optical transport systems vendor Cyan says it has won a contract from Zayo, a national provider of fiber-based bandwidth infrastructure and network-neutral colocation and interconnection services, to supply the Cyan Z-Series platform as part of an upgrade of Zayo’s Manhattan network.

Packet-optical transport systems vendor Cyan says it has won a contract from Zayo, a national provider of fiber-based bandwidth infrastructure and network-neutral colocation and interconnection services, to supply the Cyan Z-Series platform as part of an upgrade of Zayo’s Manhattan network.

Zayo expects the network upgrade will enable the delivery of more advanced Ethernet and wavelength services to Manhattan-based financial institutions as well as wholesale packet services to large carriers and wireless operators.

The fiber-optic network service provider has already deployed the Cyan Z-Series packet-optical transport platform in multiple other markets over the past two years.

"Cyan has been very effective for us across multiple markets so it made sense to look to them when we decided to upgrade our New York market," stated David Howson, president of Zayo Bandwidth. "We see growing demand for both capacity and for more advanced network infrastructure technologies, including pure wavelength and packet services for latency-sensitive applications. Cyan helped us cost-effectively meet that demand in Manhattan."
