Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), an international provider of Bandwidth Infrastructure, today announced it has been selected as an Authorized Quilt Provider (AQP) of IP services for The Quilt, a national coalition of advanced regional networks for research and education. As an AQP, Zayo can now provide IP services to Quilt members, including 35 regional networks that collectively pass traffic for more than 3,000 colleges, universities, and K-12 educational institutions across the U.S.
Zayo was selected as an AQP through the Quilt’s Commodity Internet Services Program, an initiative focused on providing members with high-bandwidth, reliable network services at a lower cost. To be recognized as an AQP, internet service providers must participate in The Quilt’s RFP process, which requires the submission of national pricing, peering point locations, and fiber network footprint. The Quilt then selects AQPs based on the provider’s ability to accommodate member network requirements at a negotiated member price.
“Zayo’s dense metro fiber presence and extensive Tier-1 network spans 45 U.S. states, allowing us to deliver end-to-end IP solutions with diverse routes and complete control over capacity and quality management,” said Max Clauson, VP of IP Services at Zayo. “As an Authorized Quilt Provider, we look forward to working with the organization’s members to provide the high-bandwidth IP solutions their users require.”
“Zayo’s broad network footprint, ability to provide the significant bandwidth needs of our member networks, and customer support make Zayo a solid service provider for Quilt members,” said Jen Leasure, President and CEO, The Quilt.
