Zayo increases capacity across pan-European network
Zayo Group has committed to providing increased optical network capacity and reach between Dublin, Ireland and Amsterdam, Netherlands in what the firm calls an ‘important step’ towards enabling 400G in the region.
The company has selected Ciena’s WaveLogicTM 5 Extreme (WL5e) technology to help deliver multi-terabit capacity across its pan-European network, enabling higher transmission rates, reduced cost per bit and optimized network performance.
Jesper Aagaard, managing director of Zayo Europe explained: ‘This deployment demonstrates Zayo’s commitment to adopting innovative technologies that allow us to provide customized, state-of-the art network solutions to our customers. This collaboration with Ciena enhances Zayo’s already extensive coverage throughout Europe and is an important step towards enabling 400G customer interface connectivity in the region.’
Jamie Jefferies, vice president and general manager, EMEA at Ciena added: ‘We are pleased to support Zayo in delivering this market leading technology to their customers.’
