Zayo chosen for small cell densification

A major wireless carrier has selected Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) for deployment of more than 500 small cell sites in two major metro areas, the company said.

The multimillion-dollar agreement includes small cell siting, placement and installation, part of Zayo´s portfolio of turnkey mobile infrastructure solutions.

The small cells are part of the carrier´s densification strategy to increase coverage and capacity in major metro areas. The projects will leverage Zayo´s distributed network of field operations teams, existing pole infrastructure and strong relationships with municipalities across the US.

Zayo´s fiber-to-the-tower (FTT) and small cell solutions are addressing wireless carriers´ requirements for infrastructure to expand coverage and capacity. The trend has resulted in growth in small cells over the past year and favorable economics for all elements of Zayo´s mobile infrastructure solution set.

Zayo Group Holdings provides communications infrastructure services, including fiber and bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure to the world´s businesses. Customers include wireless and wireline carriers, media and content companies and finance, healthcare and other large enterprises.
