Zayo Lands Layer 2 Networking Contract

Zayo announced a contract to supply a Layer 2 network connecting more than 20 locations in North America, South America and Europe for a leading location intelligence company. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The network leverages existing Zayo network, including recently acquired assets from Allstream and Viatel. Zayo is providing a Layer 2 solution that enables the customer to connect key office locations with core data centers, integrating into its multi-vendor network.

“Zayo’s rich assets in the North America and Europe, in addition to our expansive Global Reach partnerships, made this the ideal combination of capabilities for this customer,” said Tyler Coates, senior director, Ethernet at Zayo. “We look forward to building this relationship as we continue to leverage our technology and the power of our global assets.”
