“400G is rapidly becoming the prevailing requirement for networks and Zayo is breaking new ground with its 800G capabilities,” said Brian Lillie, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Zayo.

Zayo will now be enabled to deliver multi-terabit capacity across its underlying global network thanks to the availability of 400G client-side wave capabilities, which would enable higher transmission rates, lower cost per bit, faster data transfer speeds, and significantly more bandwidth capacity. These can be important features for enterprises on their digital transformation journeys.

As Zayo builds major speed upgrades in preparation of future network demands, up to 800G transmission will be accessible in select regions.

This optimized wavelength network is suitable for content providers, hyperscalers, carriers, and data centers, as it provides a direct channel for multi-cloud and multi-market connection. Due to a 40% decrease in power usage, the update would also result in reduced physical space needs as well as lower operating and maintenance expenses.

5G Technologies – IoT, Cloud, Edge, VR, AI, Video Streaming

With a rising number of users, apps, and devices driving exponential demand for greater bandwidth, the race to 400Gb/s has quickened in recent years. Zayo’s new routes would enable a fourfold increase in maximum data transfer speed over the existing norm of 100G, enabling 5G technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud-based computing, edge computing, virtual reality, high-definition video streaming, and artificial intelligence (AI).

“400G is rapidly becoming the prevailing requirement for networks and Zayo is breaking new ground with its 800G capabilities,” said Brian Lillie, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Zayo. “This deployment underscores Zayo’s commitment to maintaining the leading edge of communications infrastructure and providing state-of-the art network solutions critical to our customers’ digital transformation journeys.”
