Zayo Completes Dark Fibre Network to Proximity’s UK Data Centres

Monday, Apr 25th, 2022 (4:16 pm) - Score 2,344

The Zayo Group, which operates a large metro and long-haul fibre optic network in the UK, has completed the build of a new high-capacity Dark Fibre network at Proximity’s edge colocation data centre in Chester Gates near Manchester – they’re also nearing completion of another connection for Proximity’s Nottingham edge data centre.

Combined with the existing Zayo connection at their Birmingham facility, which was acquired earlier this year, Proximity Data Centres Limited now claims to offer customers, carriers and broadband ISPs three strategic Zayo direct Points of Presence (PoP).

Zayo’s dark fibre connection to Proximity Edge 4 at Chester Gates allows ISPs to offer a range of low-latency services to businesses located in the Northwest of England. Services offered by Zayo usually include Dark Fibre, Ethernet, wavelengths and IP etc. The company is also provisioning low latency circuits from Proximity Edge 4 to data centre hubs in Manchester, Dublin and the USA.

John Hall, MD of Colocation at Proximity Data Centres, said:

“We are delighted that Zayo is continuing to increase its points of presence across our expanding footprint of regional UK edge data centres. This is in line with our strategy of enabling Proximity’s sites to function as secure interconnected regional communications hubs for the benefit of our customers, offering the widest availability of diverse high-speed, low-latency fibre connections to carriers, ISPs and cloud providers.

Together with Zayo, we will be offering ultra-low latency cloud on ramp services to all major public cloud providers.”

Proximity’s expanding UK network of interconnected regional edge data centres currently includes sites in Birmingham, Bridgend, Swindon, Nottingham, Rugby, Liverpool, Chester Gates and Wakefield. The company expects to have 20 sites available within the next 12 months, all in close proximity to major conurbation areas.
