Zayo plans 3 routes to Marseille

Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) will offer three fully diverse network routes out of Marseille, the company said.

Marseille serves as a strategic gateway and key aggregation point between Europe, Africa and Asia as well as connectivity for subsea cables AAE-1, SEA-ME-WE-5 and several others. These three fully redundant routes provide businesses and carriers with extensive connectivity options from Marseille throughout Western Europe and North America via Zayo´s global network.

The first route, a low-latency route via Lyon that is fully operational and was announced last year, is available for both dark fiber and 100G wavelengths. The second dark fiber route traverses western France via Bordeaux. The third route connects to Strasbourg via Milan and onto Paris, Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and other European markets. Zayo is deploying a coherent 100G wavelength system over the existing fiber, which is expected to be fully completed by the end of the year.

Zayo has already secured customer contracts from a global carrier, an Internet services provider and a French telecom operator for the routes. The routes leverage assets Zayo acquired from Viatel in 2015.
