Vice President of Product and Marketing, Mary Stanhope, to Discuss Competitive Strategies for Smaller Telecom Operators 

Global CapacityChicago, IL, USA, June 3, 2014Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, announces that Vice President of Product and Marketing Mary Stanhope will be speaking at the BIG Telecom Event (BTE) to be held June 17-18 in Chicago, IL.  Organized by Light Reading, in partnership with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), the BIG Telecom Event is a conference that brings real-world, cutting-edge technology demonstrations and business insights to communications service provider executives. 

Ms. Stanhope will join moderator Carol Wilson, Editor-at-Large, Light Reading, and other industry experts on the panel Competitive Strategies for Smaller Telecom Operators, taking place Wednesday, June 18 at 3:45 PM.  The session will explore solutions to business service delivery challenges faced by today’s competitive service providers and smaller incumbent telecom operators.  The panel will also reveal new opportunities and future considerations for this operator category.

Ms. Stanhope will provide insight into how operators are expanding network services beyond their footprint, offering more competitive pricing and marketing on-net assets to a broader set of customers, while reducing costs and operating more efficiently leveraging One Marketplace, an interconnected, physical network aggregation platform with a Cloud application that automates the design, pricing, delivery and maintenance of network solutions.

Global Capacity’s One Marketplace platform addresses the challenge of buying competitive access network services by streamlining the off-net procurement process for buyers and the delivery process for sellers.  The marketplace provides transparency into access network pricing and visibility of available capacity across multiple access network services and diverse geographies. There is no other platform in the market today that uses this type of real-time market rate comparison with network availability assessment, combined with physical interconnectivity all governed by a single MSA to simplify the procurement and management of network connectivity services.

Global Capacity was recently named a finalist in the Company of the Year (Private) category of the 2014 Leading Lights Awards by Light Reading.  Award winners will be announced Tuesday, June 17, at the Leading Lights Awards dinner at The Adler Planetarium, coinciding with the BIG Telecom Event.
