Zayo Group Wraps Dark Fiber Build in Virginia

Broadband provider Zayo Group says it has completed its fiber-optic network to a DuPont Fabros Technology (DFT) data center in Ashburn, Va., connecting to customers in Zayo’s regional and national network.

Zayo will provide a suite of services into DFT’s ACC6 data center, including Ethernet, IP, wavelengths and dark fiber. Zayo also is offering services to major Internet exchange points in Ashburn, Va.

The build happened thanks to Zayo’s recent acquisition of FiberGate, which closed on Sept. 4.

“Connecting into DFT’s newest facility aligns with our strategy to have a dense data center network,” says Jim Nolte, SVP of sales at Zayo Group. “Customers at the ACC6 Facility will have enhanced connectivity to other data centers, Internet peering locations, carrier hotels and enterprise locations, among others.”

“Zayo’s fiber-optic network provides specialized dark fiber solutions to our existing and new customers within ACC6,” said Vinay Nagpal, director of carrier relations, of DFT. “This builds on our goal to enhance fiber density for our customers and expands our relationship with Zayo, which currently provides connectivity to our ten operating data centers in the U.S.”
