Global Capacity and DBR360 Strategic AllianceThis morning, Global Capacity and DBR360 announced that they are joining forces and extending Global Capacity’s telecommunications network reach.  This is exciting news!  The two companies found sympatico by extending Telecommunications Network Reach without capital investment or term commitments.

Considered the leading Network as a Services (NaaS) provider for enterprises and carriers, DBR360 is providing immediate access to their 360Exchange‘s national footprint.  This greatly benefits Global Capacity’s One Marketplace Access Exchange by connecting their latest pricing tool with a protected network architecture supporting a number of technologies, such as SONET, SDH and Ethernet.  With this new deal, Global Capacity’s reach will extend to strategically selected POPs such as New York, Los Angeles and Ashburn.  With newly gained access to extensive TDM and Ethernet point-to-point connectivity options without having to invest additional capital, Global Capacity has even greater potential to grow their reach for One Marketplace Access Exchange, which has been building much momentum in the marketplace since it’s release earlier this year.

Both David Baule, CEO of DBR360 and Patrick Shutt, CEO of Global Capacity expressed a lot of enthusiasm around the announcement.  The two companies already have a long-standing strategic relationship, and the overall sentiment from both companies expressed that this latest development only strengthens that alliance.

With this network increase from 360Exchange, One Marketplace Access Exchange customers will be able to access end-to-end network solutions benefiting from the strength of DBR360s well connected long-haul network.  A great leap forward for Global Capacity’s growing roster of businesses benefiting from the already extensive features of their premier pricing tool.

Both companies are continuing to discuss and evaluate ways to work together in this way.  We’re keeping a close eye on this relationship, which clearly exemplifies a good working strategic alliance in the Telecom space.
