Zayo Group says it can now offer 100-Gbps wavelength services from New York City to Philadelphia and from Philadelphia to Washington, DC.

The fiber-optic network services provider announced the addition of 100-Gbps capabilities to its network last December (see “Zayo adds 100-Gbps optical transmission capability”). The Northeast Corridor services are the first Zayo has publicly introduced. A number of financial, government, and large enterprise customers run along the two routes.

This deployment connects several important IP peering points and data center locations, including:

  • Ashburn/Washington, DC (21715 Filigree Data Center Campus and 2100 M St NW)
  • New York City (111 8th Avenue)
  • Philadelphia (401 North Broad Street).

"This 100G route is now deployed and ready for customer implementations," says Zach Nebergall, vice president of Zayo's Wavelength Product Group. "Zayo designed the network to be able to offer compelling economics to our customers across this key, high demand corridor."
