Zayo adds 100G IP Transit capabilities in three metro markets

Aug. 24, 2020
The company cites research that indicates the number of networked devices and connections in North America is expected to increase from 3 billion in 2018 to 5 billion in 2023 as evidence that greater capacity requirements are to be expected.

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. says it has reacted to increased demand for 100G IP Transit by adding such capabilities in Phoenix, San Jose, and Denver. The fiber-optic network services company already offers such ports in Atlanta, Boston, New York, Miami, San Francisco, and Seattle.

The company cites research that indicates the number of networked devices and connections in North America is expected to increase from 3 billion in 2018 to 5 billion in 2023 as evidence that greater capacity requirements are to be expected. Zayo says it is increasing investment in capacity in response, with applications such as remote working, remote education, telehealth, business critical requirements, and an overall global increase in public IP traffic driving demand. Other demand elements Zayo cites include capacity, diversity, and low latency.

Zayo asserts such investments enabled the company to keep pace with spikes in bandwidth demand during the early stages of the pandemic. “We're also meeting requests from higher-bandwidth consumers as they work to support the major increase in traffic on their own platforms. In many cases, the requests are for significant increases in bandwidth, even doubling capacity,” comments Julia Robin, senior vice president, Layer 3 Services.
