Carol Beering, senior vice president of sales operations for Intelisys, credited its sales partners with achieving the milestone. But she also noted Zayo's extensive network assets and its unique differences from other carriers.
With its acquisitions of USCarrier, FiberGate and AboveNet, Zayo’s network includes 74,300 route miles, serving 45 states and Washington, D.C. Its network serves approximately 11,740 on-net buildings, including 571 data centers, 563 carrier PoPs, and 3,045 cell towers. Zayo’s colocation assets include 141,000 billable square feet of interconnect-focused colocation space.
Over the last 10 months, Zayo has expanded its channel program to include dark fiber and colocation as well as a broader network footprint.
“This milestone reinforces the importance of Zayo’s efforts to become the channel’s preferred bandwidth infrastructure partner," said Glenn Russo, executive vice president of corporate strategy and development. “Intelisys provides an extensive network of sales and technical professionals along with a support model that makes them productive. We thank Intelisys’ talented sales partners, who are helping us grow together."
Intelisys has been a sales partner for Zayo or one of its predecessors since 2007. It is a distributor of business communications services including voice, data, access, cable, collaboration, wireless and cloud from more than 60 suppliers.
