Zayo deploys Paris-to-Marseille high-speed connection

BOULDER — Zayo Group Holdings Inc. has deployed a 400G fiber-optic route between Paris and Marseille.

Paris is the fourth-largest internet connectivity hub in the world, the company said in a press statement, and Marseille is on track to become the fifth-largest.

“We are continuously expanding, improving and diversifying our network in order to support our customers with their increasing bandwidth,” Yannick Leboyer, Zayo’s Europe chief operating officer, said in a written statement. “With several new subsea cable projects set to deploy in the coming years, Marseille is on its way to becoming one of the top five internet connectivity hubs globally, and Zayo is uniquely positioned to provide the necessary infrastructure to support this growth. The Paris-to-Marseille route is built to support and transport the fast-paced bandwidth growth and increasingly high demand for connectivity in these markets, giving customers a more reliable, scalable and secure way to share data to the rest of Europe and the U.S.” 

Marseille is at the crossroads of several major exchanges between terrestrial and submarine networks, Zayo’s press statement said. Six new subsea cables in Marseille are scheduled for completion, which expand connectivity with Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

To date, Boulder-based Zayo owns and operates 2.2 million kilometers of fiber and connects 16 key metro markets and nine countries across Europe.
