Cloud and OTT Are Fueling Ethernet Demand

Ethernet is now the technology of choice for enterprise SD-WAN, Hybrid WAN and Cloud connectivity solutions. Global Capacity recently announced the expansion of seven One Marketplace PoPs throughout its North American network, which includes six Ethernet local access aggregation points and three high performance Ethernet Backbone points that are purposely built for demanding Cloud, OTT and data services. The locations now Ethernet-enabled include Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA, Minneapolis, MN, and three new PoPs in Boston, MA, Kansas City, MO, and Vienna, VA. The locations added to the high performance Ethernet backbone include Kansas City, MO, Minneapolis, MN and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Each aggregation point enables the delivery of diverse route options, a broad selection of network services to One Marketplace customers, and competitive pricing. The company’s investment in growing its backbone PoPs and enabling better Ethernet access is a testament to Global Capacity’s commitment to providing flexible access options, ubiquitous coverage, and simplified service activation and management to both service providers and enterprise customers.

“Last year, Global Capacity achieved 37% growth in installed Ethernet revenue driven by cloud and data center connectivity, and the higher traffic needs of today’s data-driven society,” commented Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. “Global Capacity will continue to invest in the One Marketplace network in ways that will connect business locations in more markets to key destinations, over greater bandwidth and high performance Ethernet.”

One Marketplace eliminates network complexities and inefficiencies by delivering unprecedented transparency, efficiency and simplicity to the data connectivity market. By combining intelligent analytics and service automation through a suite of customer and supplier applications, along with network delivery, One Marketplace is able to streamline the process of designing, pricing, buying, delivering and managing data connectivity solutions.
