of a Network Marketplace for Orchestrating Edge Connectivity

Jack Lodge, President, to Join Industry Leader Panel at Metro Connect 2017

Waltham, MA, USA, January 4, 2017 Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces that its President, Jack Lodge, will be speaking at Metro Connect 2017, taking place January 31 – February 1, 2017 in Miami.  Metro Connect is the definitive meeting place for C-level delegates from the metro fiber, cable and local access markets in the U.S. to share insights and strategize for the year ahead.

On Tuesday, January 31 at 4 p.m., Mr. Lodge will join industry-leading executives from Alpheus Communications, EdgeConneX® and FiberLight on the panel “The Edge: The Importance of Becoming Local.”  Moderated by Jiva Jagtap, Senior Managing Director, FTI Consulting, the panel will explore how Cloud, data centers and content services are driving network providers to localize their services to reduce latency and meet the future Cloud demand for metro businesses.  Panelists will discuss the solutions that providers are offering to these sectors and the importance of NFV and SDN-based virtualization at the edge of the network.

“Today, having insight, visibility and increased control over the connectivity available at business locations are key success points in enabling application performance,” states Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity.  “By automating access to critical, real-time information about the many service options and prices that are available at the edge of the network, and orchestrating a hybrid of access technologies, Global Capacity makes connecting at the edge of the network easy and cost-effective.”
