Global Capacity Expands Core Network Between One Marketplace PoPs

Global Capacity announces the expansion of its core network with more than 30 Gigabits of bandwidth between its One Marketplace Points of Presence (PoPs).  This capacity is being added to meet the increasing national connectivity demands of Global Capacity’s wholesale and enterprise customers.  Combining its core network with its industry leading interconnections into TDM and Ethernet access networks, Global Capacity is able to deliver near ubiquitous networking solutions to over 3,000,000 commercial addresses in North America.

Global Capacity delivers network connectivity solutions including local network connectivity, as well as a full suite of Wide Area Network (WAN) and Access services nationally.  This expansion of its core network capacity enables superior network performance at market competitive rates.  One Marketplace customers can leverage Global Capacity’s core network to gain access to the most competitive local access connectivity across markets, regardless of where the customer is interconnected to One Marketplace.  This enables simple, efficient delivery of competitive Ethernet and TDM services across geographies, increasing the addressable market of customers efficiently and cost-effectively while eliminating the complexity of managing multiple local and long-haul venders.

“The additional bandwidth deployed between Global Capacity’s network PoPs expands the capabilities of One Marketplace, further simplifying the process to extend network reach and automate the pricing and delivery of solutions more cost-effectively across the United States,” comments Greg Hough, Executive Vice President of Network Strategy for Global Capacity.  “This unique design of core network combined with our leading state of interconnectedness, allows for customers interconnected at one PoP to connect and seamlessly leverage the valuable access networks of other One Marketplace PoPs, providing a true one-stop network procurement.”

The additional 30 Gigabits of bandwidth is deployed across two core, interconnected and diverse national rings.  The core provides the national network platform for One Marketplace.  One Marketplace delivers national access to more than 380 markets, with additional locations being added in 2013.  This broad reach is delivered with a single MSA, centralized online ordering and standardized delivery as well as an ongoing single point of contact for management of network connectivity, simplifying how customers buy network connectivity.
