Zayo unveils West Coast 100G wavelength services

June 6, 2013
Fiber-optic network services provider Zayo Group says it now offers 100-Gbps wavelength services on its network between Seattle and Los Angeles. The enhanced service will offer its customers increased capacity, improved latency, and cost-efficiencies, the company says.

Fiber-optic network services provider Zayo Group says it now offers 100-Gbps wavelength services on its network between Seattle and Los Angeles. The enhanced service will offer its customers increased capacity, improved latency, and cost-efficiencies, the company says.

The new service offering follows Zayo’s deployment of 100-Gbps optical transport platforms in various parts of the U.S. (see “Zayo adds 100-Gbps optical transmission capability”). The 100G services are available in the eastern corridor including New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, as well as such routes as Seattle to Chicago and Chicago to New York City.

Zayo hopes the new West Coast services will appeal to such current and potential customers as media content and Internet companies. Growing bandwidth demand from cloud computing, mobile traffic, “big data” processing, and video streaming should spur interest in the high-capacity aspects of the Ethernet-based services, Zayo expects. Meanwhile, the fact that 100G transport requires fewer hardware connections than multiple 10G platforms also will provide such benefits as more efficient networks with fewer potential points of failure.

Zayo’s 100G network will serve several important markets up and down the coast:

  • Seattle, WA
  • Portland, OR
  • Sacramento, CA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • San Jose, CA
  • Modesto, CA
  • Los Angeles, CA.

“The Seattle to Los Angeles route will strengthen Zayo’s ability to provide high bandwidth connectivity on the West Coast to serve key customers, including media, Internet, and carrier companies,” said Zach Nebergall of Zayo’s Wavelength Product Group. “We are investing in both the capacity and reach of our network to meet the current and future bandwidth infrastructure needs of our customers.”
