FiberLight has taken another step forward in its Texas statewide fiber network expansion, establishing additional low-latency connectivity between the western portions of the company's Texas network to tie its 10,000 mile network together.
Zayo Group has won a new dark fiber and IP services contract with the Texas Education Service Center Region 11, furthering its strategy to leverage and extend existing fiber to the tower builds.
Zayo and Mitel have teamed up to provide a hosted communications, collaboration and conferencing platform targeting businesses in Canada, marking the Zayo's first new service move following its acquisition of Allstream.
Zayo Group is giving its enterprise customers another tool to stay ahead of network attacks with its new Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation solution.
Zayo Group has named Chris Morley as its permanent COO when co-chief operating officer and co-founder Matt Erickson leaves the company in late July.
Zayo Group is seeing that its investment in dark fiber is becoming attractive not only for wireless operators, but increasingly for data center operators that need low latency routes in harder to reach locations.
Zayo is finding that as it wins new wireless operator dark and lit fiber tower contracts, these same customers are prime targets for additional services sales.
Zayo Group continues to ramp up the number of net installs to its base of wireless, enterprise and carrier customers as demand grows for the service provider's dark and lit fiber services.
Backhaul services for wireless carriers, including for small cells, continues to be a noteworthy opportunity for the nation's fiber providers like Lumos and Zayo. Indeed, executives from both companies discussed the small cell opportunity during their respective earnings conference calls this week, noting that demand remains slightly unclear but that the eventual opportunity could be significant.
Zayo has expanded its fiber-to-the-tower footprint in San Antonio to serve one of its anchor wireless service provider customers, furthering its presence in the growing dark fiber to the tower segment.
