Zayo Group Holdings has introduced the Shielded Internet Access product, which includes the service provider’s Dedicated Internet Access, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection and CloudLink.
Shielded Internet Access is initially available in Phoenix, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Indianapolis, Seattle and Toronto, with more locales coming on before the end of the year.
Zayo says that the offering is competitively priced, though it offers no dollar amounts. It is designed to bundle Internet, Internet security and direct connection to the cloud over one port. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection is included.
“Shielded Internet Access demonstrates Zayo’s commitment to supporting our customers’ demands by delivering streamlined, best-in-class solutions that are easy to implement,” Dan Stoll, Zayo’s Managing Director of Regional Networks, said in a press release about Shielded Internet Access. “Our unmatched global network combined with this new bundle of services provides customers with the secure connectivity that takes them anywhere they need to be in the most convenient, cost-effective way possible.”
All told, Zayo has a 126,000 fiber mile network in North America and Europe, with metro connectivity and connections to thousands of buildings and data centers. The company has made several announcements during the past few weeks.
On September 30, the company said that it had entered the final phase of construction of all underground dark fiber routes from Atlanta to Dallas, Denver to Salt Lake City and Eugene to Reedsport, OR.
A few days earlier, the company said that it had put an 800G route into production between New York and New Jersey. The announcement was related to an announcement made a month earlier of plans for 31 routes supporting 400G connectivity across North America and Europe.
Today’s press release about Zayo Shielded Internet Access also mentions recent market expansions. For instance, the Phoenix network now includes about 100 fiber route miles in West Valley, including Goodyear, Avondale, El Mirage and surrounding communities. The company is building 200 route miles in Pinal County, the development connecting Phoenix and Tuscan.
