Zayo serves up U.S. West Coast 100G wavelength service

Zayo has added a Seattle-to-Los Angeles fiber route offering 100G wavelength network services for its growing base of media content and internet companies that reside on the West Coast.

Available immediately, the 100G Wavelength service allows its customers to originate and terminate add/drop 100G service capabilities in Seattle and Portland, Ore. It will also provide add/drop capabilities in five markets in California, including Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Modesto, and Los Angeles.

"The Seattle to Los Angeles route will strengthen Zayo's ability to provide high bandwidth connectivity on the West Coast to serve key customers, including media, internet and carrier companies," said Zach Nebergall of Zayo's Wavelength Product Group.

The implementation of 100G on its West Coast route is part of a broader national 100G network from which it will offer wavelength services in a number of major markets in the United States.

Over the past few months, the 100G technology has been implemented in its Eastern markets including New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Zasyo also completed implementation and installed 100G customer services along its Seattle-to-Chicago and Chicago-to-New York City routes.

Although the 100G wave services are relatively new, the competitive provider continues to see strong gains in wavelength services rose to $60.7 million in its fiscal third quarter.
