“Global Capacity is honored to be shortlisted for two of the telecom industry’s most distinguished awards,” states Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity.  “One Marketplace was purpose-built to improve efficiency by streamlining and simplifying the pricing, procurement and delivery of access network services. These nominations are a recognition of Global Capacity’s ability to address the transparency, efficiency and simplicity needed for Ethernet connectivity in today’s complex, fragmented market.”

One Marketplace provides users with real-time design, pricing and ordering of Ethernet services.  The marketplace provides transparency into Ethernet pricing and visibility into available capacity across multiple access networks and technologies.  The platform not only provides visibility into the optimal price, it is a procurement system that enables seamless ordering and tracks provisioning, delivery status, and performance for each circuit purchased through the platform.  Leveraging One Marketplace, Global Capacity customers can source multi-vendor Ethernet access services from over 42 networks through a single External Network to Network Interface (ENNI).  Furthermore, a One Hub Interconnect to One Marketplace offers service providers the ultimate reach and flexibility.   This innovative interconnect enables Global Capacity customers to leverage an Ethernet interconnection while still being able to utilize legacy TDM end links over the same connection without additional equipment.
