Zayo Group announces the completion of the network integration between Zayo and AboveNet networks. The resulting combined network nearly doubles Zayo’s national network reach and provides connectivity that spans over 61,000 route miles in 45 states and 7 countries.  Zayo closed the acquisition of AboveNet on July 2nd, 2012.

The integration of the Zayo and AboveNet fiber networks includes the combination of the previously separate DWDM (Wavelengths), Ethernet and IP systems.  The interconnection of the two previously independent fiber networks included creating fiber connections to link key network nodes as well as implementing new network equipment that enables the previously independent networks to communicate. Zayo has also completed the consolidation of network management and customer support into a single Network Control Center.

Customers can now access Zayo’s national and dense metro networks across points-of-presence in over 200 markets. Zayo’s points-of-presence span 18 of the 20 largest markets in the US, as well as smaller markets, such as Spokane, Boise and Albuquerque with unique network assets. The integration also brings access to major cities across Europe including London, Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.
