If anyone thinks there's a fiber glut, they obviously have not talked to Zayo Enterprise Networks. To keep up with new business service demands, the competitive provider is pumping 100 miles of new fiber routes in its Denver market to bring power up its 'Fiber-to-the-Enterprise' initiative.
A key part of the fiber deployment will be BTI Systems' packet optical network platforms (PONP) and carrier Ethernet platforms. Zayo will leverage BTI 7000 Series packet optical networking platform and the BT 700 Series Ethernet demarcation and aggregation devices to deliver 1 Gbps and higher Ethernet and IP services to Denver area business customers.
While much of the attention around PONPs have centered on large service providers (Verizon), competitive providers such as Zayo are finding these platforms have great utility to deliver alternative metro connectivity to various vertical market segments, including healthcare, school districts and government agencies.
