Zayo announces today the completion of its network upgrade for the Marietta City Schools (MCS). MCS is a public K-12 school district in Marietta, Georgia serving over 8,000 students with approximately 1,200 employees. The network upgrade provides Marietta City Schools with a high-speed, wide-area, fiber network linking its central administrative office to each remote location with high bandwidth capacity.

Zayo’s cost-effective network upgrade plan based on its long-term partnership and expertise with MCS, will satisfy the district’s growing need for bandwidth. Zayo was also able to ensure security and reliability, as it is one of the few providers in the area that owns its fiber assets and has existing, direct connections to each of the schools. Additionally, Zayo was able to implement an E-Rate compliant fiber network, which will increase capacity by ten times at each site to a full Gigabit.

As a national provider of fiber-based bandwidth infrastructure and network-neutral colocation and interconnection services, Zayo serves wireline and wireless carriers, data centers, internet content and services companies, high bandwidth enterprises as well as federal, state and local government agencies.
