Denver Public Schools (DPS) in partnership with Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has completed implementation of a dark fiber private network across its district, the company said .
The high-capacity fiber network spans more than 600 route miles of fiber, which included more than 50 route miles of new build to reach 132 schools. The dark fiber network provides DPS with increased capacity, improved reliability and a more cost-effective solution.
The dark fiber network has increased the capacity for each DPS school location by approximately 500%. The additional bandwidth enables DPS to leverage digital resources in K-12 classrooms, including electronic textbooks, online standardized testing, streaming media, educational resources and cloud-based applications. The increased capacity has also eliminated congestion issues caused by the district´s largest bandwidth requirement and key security initiative, video surveillance.
Zayo has made a significant investment in its Colorado network since it was founded in Boulder in 2007. Today, Zayo´s Denver fiber footprint consists of 1,750 route miles, which connects to more than 25 data centers, and four zColo data centers.
Zayo provides mission-critical bandwidth to the world´s most impactful companies, fueling the innovations that are transforming our society. Zayo´s 133,000-mile network in North America and Europe includes extensive metro connectivity to thousands of buildings and data centers. For more information, visit zayo.com.
