LONDON -- Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), an international provider of Bandwidth Infrastructure services, today announced a UK network expansion that enhances service offerings to customers east of London. The new 53-mile fibre network, which stretches as far as Basildon in Essex, doubles the reach of Zayo’s network in London.

This is Zayo’s second major investment in the UK since November, when the company announced a network expansion in the London and Slough areas that will provide dark fibre backhaul to connect 21 BT phone and Ethernet exchange points.

Zayo already provides extensive connections in the greater London area, connecting to more than 500 buildings in the region. The new fibre network equips Zayo with its own direct routes between these key locations and strategic points to the east: Stratford, the former Olympics site, with its content and media industry development; Basildon and Romford, where key trading venues are located; and Thurrock, with its mix of data centres and distribution hubs. Zayo has had a limited presence in the Basildon and Romford areas for several years; this expansion creates a deeper fibre footprint in the network east of London and makes Zayo’s full set of lit services available to the high-demand areas of Thurrock and Stratford.

Zayo Group Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO)

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
