Zayo Group Holdings, Inc., a leading global communications infrastructure provider, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers in the prestigious 2023 Channel Futures Managed Service Provider (MSP) 501 rankings. This is Zayo’s second year on the list, making a significant leap to a #8 rank in 2023 from its 179th rank in 2022.

Zayo delivers critical managed edge, connectivity, cybersecurity and voice-and-collaboration services to the largest and most innovative organizations, through its direct sales team and a robust network of channel partners. As emerging technologies continue to drive network complexities, enterprises increasingly require more sophisticated managed network services that connect all digital touchpoints and environments. Zayo’s expansive global network combined with its best-in-class managed services not only enable connection for its customers from edge to edge, edge to cloud, cloud to core, and everywhere in between, but also provide impactful observability and automated insights into network performance to streamline IT workflows, cut costs, and mitigate and reduce incidents.

Zayo provides managed services to over 6,000 customers across 51 countries including 142,000 network devices; 252,000 unified communications as a service (UCaaS) extensions; and 700,000 session initiation protocols (SIPs).

“At Zayo, we are on a mission to deliver the modern network infrastructure and services our customers need to be successful in today’s digital-first world. Zayo’s inclusion in the MSP 501 is an incredible recognition that speaks to this dedication from our team,” said Michael McKerley, Senior Vice President, Managed Services at Zayo. “Building out our managed services has been an integral part of our strategy over the last year, but we’re not done yet. We will deliver a growing portfolio of proactive, customer-centric managed services combined with a fully automated, on-demand network architecture that can power our customers’—and help our partners power their customers’— long-term priorities.”

For the past 17 years, managed service providers around the globe have submitted applications for inclusion on this prestigious and definitive listing. The Channel Futures MSP 501 survey examines organizational performance based on annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue mix, growth, innovation and supported technologies.

MSPs that qualify for the list must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures. It ranks applicants using a unique methodology that weighs financial performance according to long-term health and viability, commitment to recurring revenue and operational efficiency.

“The 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners persevered through challenging times to become the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today,” said Jeff O’Heir, Channel Futures senior news editor and MSP 501 project manager. “The MSP 501 ranking doesn’t award MSPs solely on their size and revenue. It acknowledges the business acumen, best practices and trusted advice they deliver to customers every day. They deserve the honor.”
