Zayo Bandwidth flexes its wireless backhaul muscles

Wireless backhaul is no longer an incumbent's game as a host of new alternative players are coming to table. One of those alternative players is Zayo Bandwidth. Seeing an opportunity to support both current 2G and 3G as well as upcoming 4G networks, Zayo Bandwidth will deploy TDM and Ethernet services to an additional 300 wireless tower sites in its Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley segments of Pennsylvania. This latest deployment will expand Zayo Bandwidth's wireless tower footprint to more than 1,100 U.S. locations.

Zayo's fiber to the tower expansion, which will accommodate the insatiable demand for data- and bandwidth-rich wireless applications, reflects the growing opportunity that traditional incumbent wholesalers (Qwest and Verizon Partners), wireline wholesalers and a new generation of wholesalers (Zayo, FiberTower, TTM and Level 3) see in wireless backhaul.
