New Architecture Allows for Efficient Interconnection that Addresses Service Providers’ Network Challenges
Chicago, IL, USA, April 10, 2013 – Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, today introduces One Hub, the industry-leading interconnection to its One Marketplace network. One Hub offers customers the options of 1 or 10 Gig ENNIs that connect to over 3,000,000 addresses in the U.S. with native Ethernet services. Over the same interconnect, service providers will also have the ability to procure and connect all of their TDM network needs through One Marketplace’s nearly ubiquitous footprint. One Hub automatically maps all T1 and DS3 connections to Ethernet VLANs leveraging the single Ethernet interconnect port for ultimate reach and flexibility.
Global Capacity has upgraded its One Marketplace interconnection points with the Overture 6000 and Telco System T-Metro 8006 to provide aggregation and switching for the broadest range of access methods, including fiber, copper, SONET, and TDM. One Hub leverages this new network architecture to offer customers the flexibility to procure both Ethernet and TDM-based access services over one Ethernet interconnection.
“While there is no denying that Carrier Ethernet is the access and delivery technology of choice for service providers, T1 lines still make up a significant percentage of the wireline access market,” states Erin Dunne, Director of Research Services for Vertical Systems Group. “Service providers are challenged to support a broad range of services in order to meet customer needs while simultaneously reducing their costs and simplifying their network. Solutions that deliver cost-effective and flexible service options for Ethernet and TDM are critical for service providers to remain competitive.”
One Hub enables Global Capacity customers to evolve to next-generation networks in the most cost-effective and efficient manner. The benefit of a One Hub interconnection to One Marketplace is that it offers service providers the ability to:
- Migrate to an Ethernet interconnection while still being able to utilize legacy DS1 and DS3 TDM end links over the same connection without additional equipment.
- Leverage the most efficient and cost-effective access service to deliver off-net connectivity.
- Reduce hub and cross-connect costs by aggregating connectivity over the same connection to the One Marketplace network.
“The flexibility of One Hub enables Global Capacity customers to gain access to both our tremendous Ethernet reach as well as accommodate the TDM requirements in their network without losing any functionality or requiring any additional equipment,” adds Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer at Global Capacity. “Our customers now have a simple and cost-effective way to reach the entire U.S. market and beyond governed by a single MSA with uniform terms, conditions and SLAs while mitigating the complexities associated with the management of multiple technical interconnections and vendors.”
Global Capacity’s One Marketplace enables customers to accelerate time to market and provide ubiquitous services by automating the procurement of network connectivity. One Hub provides a consolidated interconnection through which buyers can cost-effectively and efficiently expand their network. The One Hub flexible interconnection solution has extended access from 380 markets to five locations including New York, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta with additional locations to be added in 2013.
