Zayo Lights Denver With Expanded Fiber Optic Network Services

Zayo Group, a major provider of fiber optic bandwidth infrastructure, has metro fiber networks in the Denver and Colorado Springs metropolitan business districts. Now they are expanding their fiber assets to span the entire Front Range of Colorado that includes the Denver metro area plus Colorado Springs, Boulder, Longmont, Loveland, Greeley and Fort Collins. For Colorado based businesses, this means another 521 miles of fiber to support research and development, technology, education and energy, among other major users. That will bring Zayo up to 900 route miles of fiber optic networking in the Denver area.

Find the fiber optic services you need in the Denver, Colorado area and nationwide...What sort of fiber optic services are available to businesses in the Denver area? Pretty much everything you can use from metro connections to Internet access, right on up to wavelength services and dark fiber.

Zayo can offer you classic TDM and SONET based services from DS3 (45 Mbps) right on up to OC-192 (10 Gbps). You can get these configured as point to point private lines, hub/tail arrangements and dedicated ring configurations. There are options for both logical and physical protection with fast failover.

Zayo is also set up to offer you the newer Ethernet over Fiber (EoF) services with speeds that range from 100 Mbps (Fast Ethernet) up to 10 Gbps (10 GigE). These are also available as point to point private lines, but go on to include point to multipoint configurations. These Ethernet services include end to end QoS (Quality of Service) options to prioritize voice, video and private data network traffic. This gives you the ability to converge your network for cost savings and higher productivity.

Does your company need Dedicated Internet Access (DIA)? Who doesn’t? Zayo offers line speeds ranging from 10 Mbps on the low end on up to 1 Gbps. This runs on a fully redundant MPLS network with Service Level Agreements (SLA) available from 99.9% to 99.99% uptime. Choose from Scalable GigE and 10GigE interface options. You also have the ability to connect end to end on Zayo’s nationwide network.

If standard fiber optic line services aren’t quite enough to meet your needs, you can opt for wavelength services over Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM). Options include 1, 2.5, or 10 Gbps in single or multiple waves. Choose a dedicated point to point data transport solution with defined or undefined routes, single path or dual path, or flexible topologies.

For the ultimate in bandwidth and security options, Zayo can provide you with dark fiber. Since you are leasing entire fiber strands exclusively, you have complete control of the traffic on your piece of the fiber network. This offers stronger security that you can achieve with shared networks. It also gives you complete protocol flexibility and rapid scaling for speeds up to 400 Gbps.

While this particular buildout covers the Denver, Colorado area, Zayo Group provides both nationwide and international connectivity with over 61,000 route miles of fiber, 9,000 buildings and 2,400 cell towers on-net, and 136,000 square feet of colocation space. Their network covers 45 states plus Washington, DC, as well as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Toronto and Tokyo.
