Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) says it will provide wavelength services to a global webscale company to connect its data centers in Dublin and Amsterdam. Zayo declined to name the webscale company, but reveal that it is an existing client. The wavelength service will use a direct route that is unique to Zayo.

Connecting Dublin to continental Europe, the fiber-optic network will leverage assets acquired from Geo Networks and Viatel (see "Zayo reshuffles, agrees to buy Viatel" and "Zayo acquires London-based fiber provider Geo Networks"). The fiber-optic route, which bypasses the traffic clusters of London, also should appeal to content and media companies, carriers, financial firms, and multinational corporations in search of wavelength services.

Global companies in multiple sectors continue to demonstrate demand for dedicated, high-capacity networks, in both dark fiber and wavelength form, for their wavelength services, according to Zayo.

"In this case, our long-standing customer needs multiple terabytes of throughput on a direct route," said Andrew Crouch, president and COO at Zayo.
