Zayo Holdings (NYSE: ZAYO) says it will provide dark fiber to broadband provider Consolidated Smart Systems. Consisting of approximately 190 miles of dark fiber, including existing network and new build, the system will extend Consolidated Smart Systems' broadband service capabilities to Southern Californian multiple dwelling unit (MDU) communities, says Zayo.
Zayo says it will provide a private dedicated network (PDN) starting with 10 Gigabit Ethernet services to each location, and will manage the infrastructure. The network will enable Consolidated Smart Systems to deliver gigabit service at a competitive price point. According to Zayo, the deal will also enable Consolidated Smart Systems to provide its portfolio with "always on" internet.
"High-speed internet is one of the differentiating amenities for residents," said Dan Terheggen, Consolidated Smart Systems CEO. "Zayo's flexible solution will enable us to offer high-performance broadband for current residents and provide the infrastructure to scale. No one in California will be able to match our speed and price. We are excited to work with Zayo and look forward to the relationship growing over the next few years."
The deal will bring Zayo within proximity of several prospective and existing high-profile clients, and expand Zayo's existing fiber footprint in metro Los Angeles, (see "Zayo adds Los Angeles data center footprint").
