Global Bandwidth Infrastructure provider Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”) announced today that it has expanded its existing contract with quad-play operator TalkTalk, enabling the carrier to offer enhanced services to its 4 million customers in the UK.
The new contract, which will be delivered by the close of the third quarter of 2014, provides TalkTalk with several UK network services, including: 10G wavelengths within the UK and across Europe, an increase in IP transit service speeds from 30G to 50G, and 10G transatlantic services from London to New York. The agreement will also allow TalkTalk to utilize seven new dark fibre circuits on an individual fibre basis over the next few months, as demand requires.
Colin Whitbread, chief network officer for TalkTalk, says: “This new agreement with Zayo enables us to rapidly expand the choice of services we offer to our customers in a flexible way, whilst ensuring cost stability.”
Alastair Kane, European vice president for Zayo, says: “Having the ability to deliver the capacity that TalkTalk requires on demand is further validation of our strategy of continuing to invest heavily in dark fibre capacity.”
Zayo recently extended its network footprint in Europe through two acquisitions. It expanded in the UK (including Wales and the London metro area) and Ireland through its acquisition of Geo Networks, and it is establishing a presence in France through its acquisition of Neo Telecoms, which is expected to close in the end of the third quarter of 2014.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
