Global Capacity Expands One Marketplace Access Exchange With Aggregated Ethernet ServicesOne Marketplace Clients Can Now Request Automated Rates, Place Orders, Provision and Manage Off-Net Ethernet Solutions (May 15, 2012)
CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- Global Capacity, the world's leading telecommunications information and logistics company announces the addition of Ethernet Access services to the One Marketplace Access Exchange with physical interconnection points in Chicago, IL and Dallas, TX. Customers will now be able to request automated rates, place orders, provision and manage off-net Ethernet access solutions through the One Marketplace platform. Strategic network interconnections will facilitate revenue growth by exposing on-net Ethernet services to automated market demand, while improving EBITDA performance through lower operating expenses.
Over the past year, Global Capacity clients have continued to grow their businesses leveraging Ethernet as a viable alternative for replacements of traditional Frame Relay, ATM and private line access. Today, Global Capacity automates point to point Ethernet rates for more than 40 suppliers and has seen Ethernet based access requests increase from 1% to 20% of overall quotes volume. While Ethernet demand is still dominated by large fiber based Ethernet service requests, Global Capacity is seeing a growing demand and supply for low bandwidth Ethernet access services including Ethernet over Copper (EoC).
"With the increased demand for Ethernet Services across the industry, Global Capacity has a unique advantage by providing customers a streamlined and more efficient process to manage their off-net quoting and delivery solutions," comments Patrick Shutt, CEO of Global Capacity. "By strategically interconnecting with partners, Global Capacity can deliver increased market transparency and leverage carrier's excess capacity to provide a more comprehensive solution to its customers which will add value to the entire marketplace."
Global Capacity's initial interconnection points are strategically located to meet demand in Chicago and Dallas. Clients can connect directly from their POP with 1 GbE port interconnections to Global Capacity's carrier-grade Ethernet switching platform. Once interconnected, clients have a cost-effective and efficient method to expand their reach leveraging the available capacity of other participating Carriers, Service Providers or Enterprise Customers.
One Marketplace Access Exchange provides clients with fast, accurate, real time pricing for Ethernet access circuits, vastly improving a company's response time to customer requests. At the same time it provides market intelligence enabling carriers to offer competitive pricing -- all while meeting the demand of the market.
