This morning we have two expansion announcements from Zayo, one over in Europe and the other in northern California.
In Europe, Zayo is opening a fourth data center in the Paris metro area, adding 55,000 square feet of space to their footprint in the French capital. The facility will be located at 16-18 Avenue de l'Europe in Velizy, which lies to the southwest of the city near Versailles and is home to a concentration of tech companies. Zayo's Paris colo and fiber footprint derives from the Neo Telecoms acquisition, with some additional assets that derive from Viatel, and spans some 600 route miles.
Meanwhile, in California Zayo has picked up another small cell deal. An unnamed wireless carrier has tapped them to densify its wireless network in the Napa Valley to the northeast of the Bay Area. Napa and the area around it are of course famous for wineries and have seen growing tourism in recent years. Zayo will be adding 23 new route miles of network hooking up 50 small cell deployments, helping improve network service in key spots. Zayo's western depth just got a fresh infusion of fiber from the acquisition of Electric Lightwave, and I expect we will be seeing them put significant capital behind projects across the region over the next year or two.
