LOUISVILLE - Zayo Group said today it is implementing 100G wavelength services across major markets in the U.S., with the platform already operational in some locations and will continue to be deployed during the remainder of 2012 and into the first half of 2013.

By upgrading long-haul and metro market networks, Zayo said it can provide native 100G wavelength connectivity to key traffic aggregation points and IP nodes throughout the U.S.

The 100G expansion will allow Zayo customers to obtain cost-efficient, high-bandwidth services between major U.S. markets, the company said.

"Zayo is a focused-bandwidth, infrastructure provider, and upgrading along key routes to 100G technology is the next step in providing customers with the latest high-bandwidth technology," said Zach Nebergall of Zayo's wavelength product group.

"Additionally, the Zayo national network provides unique route options which enable our customers to take advantage of fiber path diversity between these core traffic aggregation locations."

The Zayo deployments enable the ability to scale bandwidth capacity along the routes to eight terabytes, the company said.

Zayo also announced it is expanding its fiber footprint in eastern Oregon by laying 35 miles of 96-count fiber for a newly implemented Fiber-to-the-Tower project.

"The expansion in eastern Oregon is consistent with our business strategy to invest on behalf of our customers while creating long-term infrastructure that can be leveraged by others for a broad range of applications," said Brett Palmer, Zayo's vice president of its dark fiber product group.
