Zayo employs Cyan to target Ethernet, wavelength opportunities in New York

Zayo is the latest service provider to employ Cyan Networks' Z-Series packet-optical transport platform (P-OTP) platform as key element of its Manhattan network upgrade.

With the Cyan gear, the competitive provider plans to target a number of the area's financial institutions that want high speed and lower latency services. Zayo also plans to provide wholesale services to other service providers and wireless operators with Ethernet and wavelength services.   

Having deployed the Cyan Z-Series in a number of its markets since 2009, the two companies are hardly strangers.

The Cyan Z-Series P-OTP has been deployed in multiple Zayo markets over the past two years--demonstrating carrier class reliability, scalable Ethernet services, along with valuable service management and SLA reporting capability in the Cyan360 Software portfolio.

David Howson, president of Zayo Bandwidth said they "see growing demand for both capacity and for more advanced network infrastructure technologies, including pure wavelength and packet services for latency sensitive applications," and "Cyan helped us cost-effectively meet that demand in Manhattan."
