One Marketplace Expands On-Net Connectivity to Over 5,000 Tier 2 and 3 Communities across US
Chicago, IL, USA, October 6, 2014 – Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, and INDATEL, a group of wholesale carriers dedicated to providing best-in-class, cost-effective transport connectivity, today announce a new partnership that allows INDATEL to buy Ethernet services through One Marketplace interconnects in Chicago, Minneapolis and Dallas. The partnership between Global Capacity and INDATEL will provide Global Capacity’s One Marketplace members access to INDATEL’s 500+ Rural Local Exchange Carriers and 80,000 fiber optic route miles of middle-mile network serving over 5,000 communities nationally.
“Our goal is to provide our members and affiliates with efficient, cost-effective network connectivity, enabling them to meet growing customer demands,” says Max Huffman, Chief Operating Officer for INDATEL. “The extended reach and streamlined delivery capabilities of One Marketplace coupled with the simplicity of a single point of contact in Global Capacity provide tremendous benefit.”
As much a value to INDATEL buying and expanding their network reach, One Marketplace also offers an opportunity to sell on-net services for INDATEL and leverage their Ethernet network assets and capacity. With interconnections to One Marketplace, INDATEL will gain the following competitive advantages:
- Access to the most efficient and cost-effective network connectivity
- Ability to promote network locations and capability to a wider market;
- Market intelligence around true demand sets; and
- Participation in larger off-net and outsourced opportunities as a competitive piece of larger total solution.
“Our partnership with INDATEL will open up new business and revenue opportunities for both Rural Local Exchange Carriers and One Marketplace customers across the US,” adds Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer for Global Capacity. “An interconnection to One Marketplace delivers connectivity to over 3 million commercial addresses in the US, all leveraging one MSA and one SLA.”
One Marketplace enables customers to take advantage of near-ubiquitous network access by combining an interconnected, physical network aggregation platform with a Cloud application that automates the design, pricing, delivery and maintenance of network solutions.
