About Us

Our API Story

Zayo’s API journey started in early 2018 when we identified an emerging technology and a gap in capabilities in the intersection of high touch business operations vs self-serve portals. Tranzact was our flagship for customer interactions at the time, and we jumped with one dedicated resource to try our very first API offering. The Quote API was released with 5 key partners in the industry who served as our beta customers. In the first year, we saw volume grow to thousands of API calls and knew based on customer demand, that we needed to expand this capability for our customers.

Over the next 5 years, Zayo’s API toolkit has expanded to be a comprehensive quote-to-cash and service management portfolio which generates millions of API calls and is an industry leader and pioneer of telecommunications B2B software integration.

Because of the success of the program, Zayo is a proud partner in the global API standards design of MEF’s LSO Sonata inter-provider program and LSO Cantata enterprise program. Our user base grows by scores of new API customers every quarter and we continue growing with our latest addition of API Push Notifications within our Maintenance Cases API. Zayo’s API stack includes proprietary routes, and production ready MEF adoption in addition to ongoing new capabilities MEF’s Celine release to the market.
