Zayo Group launches new dark fiber services unit

Already busy snapping up fiber assets from other competitive dark fiber providers, the Zayo Group has just carved out yet another new latest business unit, Zayo Fiber Solutions (ZFS).

As its name implies, ZFS will design, build and manage dark fiber networks for wholesale carrier, enterprise and government customers.

Having just swallowed up the former AGL Networks (AGL) and putting a deal on the table to buy American Fiber Systems--two companies that placed a great emphasis on selling dark fiber--the debut of ZFS reflects Zayo's acquisition strategy as of late. AGL's revenue consisted completely of dark fiber services, while a major portion of AFS' revenue came from dark fiber services.

ZFS will not only provide dark fiber services in the existing AGL and AFS markets, but also offer dark fiber services to customers across the majority of Zayo Group's fiber footprint and in additional markets Zayo does not currently serve.
