Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) has been selected by a large data center provider for dark fiber to connect its East Coast data centers. The solution includes primary and diverse routes in New York and New Jersey, providing low-latency infrastructure for the provider.

Zayo’s solution consist of more than 30 dark fiber pairs along completely diverse routes for the data center provider. Diverse and low-latency connectivity is a critical requirement for data centers, especially those that serve the financial sector.
