The upgrade, Zayo says, allows it to offer more advanced Ethernet and wavelength services to some of the largest financial institutions in the world, as well as wholesale packet services to large carriers and wireless operators. The Cyan Z-Series packet-optical transport platform (P-OTP) has been deployed in multiple Zayo markets over the past two years. Cyan says it demonstrates carrier class reliability, scalable Ethernet services, along with valuable service management and SLA reporting capability.
"Cyan has been very effective for us across multiple markets so it made sense to look to them when we decided to upgrade our New York market," said David Howson, president of Zayo Bandwidth. "We see growing demand for both capacity and for more advanced network infrastructure technologies, including pure wavelength and packet services for latency sensitive applications. Cyan helped us cost-effectively meet that demand in Manhattan."
"Zayo is emblematic of the forward-thinking carriers we like to work with they understand that evolving packet networks will be held to a higher standard by customers who have stringent SLA requirements," said Keith Broach, Cyan’s VP of sales. "The Cyan toolkit for provisioning, managing, and monitoring wavelength and Ethernet services is complimentary to Zayo’s mission to meet this growing market demand."
