Global CapacityLast week, we offered a little refresher course—in honor of the beginning of the school year—on the marketplace model.  Simply put, a marketplace disrupts “business as usual” offloading transactional processes done by people to simplify the connection of buyers and sellers and delivering services.  This week’s part two segment covers the ABCs of Global Capacity’s One Marketplace and how this award winning marketplace of networks addresses the inherent challenge of simplifying the buying of network connectivity services.


Connectivity buyers and sellers alike are trying to transact in a fragmented, opaque, complex and inefficient marketplace. Why do buyers and sellers have a hard time finding each other in the telecom world?

  • The network market is highly fragmented with multiple network suppliers and technologies
  • No one carrier has a ubiquitous footprint, and customer requirements force carriers to extend beyond their own network
  • Network supply and pricing is opaque and requires much research, contacts and time to gain insight
  • Network delivery is complex with multiple engineering and business friction points

Global Capacity’s unique marketplace model was designed to address the fractured nature of the telecommunication access network market.

Customers take advantage of One Marketplace to simplify and streamline the entire service delivery process and ensure faster, simpler and more reliable rollout of connectivity services.  One Marketplace offers benefits, including:

  1. Efficiently connecting buyers with sellers by creating automated real time pricing with transparency into the marketplace of access networks;
  2. Delivering a faster time-to-market with physical interconnects while leveraging a single MSA with uniform terms, conditions and SLAs for less complexity;
  3. Ensuring a streamlined and consistent service delivery for best customer experience regardless of geography and network technology.
