Zayo Group Announces Completion of Dark Fiber Build
Zayo Completes Dark Fiber Build to DuPont Fabros Technology's ACC6
LOUISVILLE, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Zayo Group, an
international Bandwidth Infrastructure company, announces the
completion of its fiber-optic network to DuPont Fabros Technology's
("DFT") ACC6 Data Center located in Ashburn, Virginia. This build
provides diverse dark fiber connectivity in point-to-point or ring
topology to customers between the DuPont Fabros facility and Zayo's
regional and national network.
Zayo will provide a suite of services into DFT's ACC6 Data Center,
which includes Ethernet, IP, Wavelengths and Dark Fiber.
Additionally, Zayo is offering services to major internet exchange
points in Ashburn, Virginia.
This build was enabled by Zayo's recent acquisition of FiberGate,
which closed on September 4, 2012. Zayo has connectivity to all of
DFT's Data Centers. Data Center connectivity is a critical focus for
Zayo and currently has 10,000+ buildings on net across the U.S. and
"Connecting into DFT's newest facility aligns with our strategy to
have a dense Data Center network," says Jim Nolte, SVP of Sales at
Zayo Group. "Customers at the ACC6 Facility will have enhanced
connectivity to other Data Centers, Internet Peering Locations,
Carrier Hotels and Enterprise locations, among others."
"Zayo's fiber-optic network provides specialized dark fiber solutions
to our existing and new customers within ACC6," says Vinay Nagpal,
Director of Carrier Relations, of DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.
"This builds on our goal to enhance fiber density for our customers
and expands our relationship with Zayo, which currently provides
connectivity to our ten operating Data Centers in the U.S."
