Zayo Group, a global leader in fiber network infrastructure, today announced that thousands more businesses throughout Europe will be able to access up to 100G connectivity thanks to its near-net expansion.
This development will enhance connectivity options for businesses across the UK & Ireland, The Netherlands, Germany and France, providing robust and high-speed network solutions to meet customers' evolving IT infrastructure needs. This allows Zayo to quickly and easily connect organizations in close proximity to its fiber infrastructure.
Zayo currently provides approximately 7,000 buildings across eight key European markets with near-net connectivity. Expansion is planned throughout 2024 in London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Stuttgart, Berlin, Dublin and various markets in France.
Omdia data highlights that 63% of enterprises have invested in a private data center to achieve 100G connectivity, while 54% are partnering with multiple public cloud providers for the same outcome. Zayo's near-net expansion will remove this need by delivering reliable, scalable connectivity for thousands more businesses near its fiber infrastructure.
Michael Katz, VP of Products and Technology, said: “Too many businesses rely on incumbent broadband services, which can significantly hinder performance and productivity. Our near-net expansion leaves this issue in the past for more businesses throughout Europe. We will bring our suite of connectivity services to the front door for companies that have previously struggled with unreliable connectivity options, streamlining the process and creating an environment where they can easily adopt cloud systems and innovative technologies to help their businesses thrive. Zayo designs, builds and delivers the highest quality, low-latency networks to markets throughout Europe, and this is just another step forward in our continued expansion plans.”
Ian Redpath, Research Director at global analyst firm Omdia, said: “74% of enterprises need a 100G connection to support their own private and multiple public cloud data centers. Zayo's near-net expansion extends fiber infrastructure directly into many more client sites, enabling 100Gbps high capacity, low latency, arterial connectivity required to support today's modern, cloud-centric, IT infrastructure.”
