Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity, to Join Industry Leader Panel at ITW 2016

Global CapacityChicago, IL, USA, May 3, 2016 Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, announces its participation at International Telecoms Week (ITW) 2016, taking place in Chicago, May 8-11. ITW is the annual meeting for the global wholesale telecommunications community, bringing together participants from around the world and providing the opportunity to learn and network with industry peers, suppliers and customers.

Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity, will join industry leaders on the Equinix-hosted panel Solving for Digital Disruption Through Interconnection, taking place Tuesday, May 10 at 9:00 AM. The session, moderated by Carol Wilson, Editor-at-Large of Light Reading, will focus on what network service providers are doing with new technologies in terms of software, automation and orchestration to satisfy rapidly changing enterprise requirements driven by the digital era.

“Interconnection is a critical factor in today’s always-on, digital world, particularly with growing dependence on Cloud-based business applications,” states Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. “Local, cost-effective access with dedicated, secure, high-performance transport that directly connects to high-demand Cloud services and applications is a must-have to enable enterprises to access the services supporting their business-critical operations.”

Global Capacity and Equinix have been working together since 2013 and continue to collaborate to provide enterprise customers with reliable, secure, direct access to the Cloud. Through a direct Ethernet interconnection from One Marketplace to the Equinix Cloud Exchange, enterprises gain high-performance access to one or multiple Cloud services. Enterprises can connect to Cloud service providers interconnected to Equinix Cloud Exchange in their IBX data center or in a remote IBX data center. For example, if an enterprise requires access to Amazon Web Services (AWS), but is not in one of the eight markets offering AWS on the Cloud Exchange, by using the One Marketplace™ Cloud Network, the enterprise is able to gain direct, dedicated access to this service without being physically inside that remote data center location.

Leveraging One Marketplace, enterprise customers can bypass the public Internet with secure, dedicated network services, connecting their headquarters and branch offices to Over-the-Top voice, video and business application and Cloud service providers. Cloud connectivity from One Marketplace provides cost-effective, flexible, secure connectivity for business traffic from Cloud services and applications to over 9.6 million commercial addresses, including business headquarters, remote office locations and data centers. Global Capacity’s award-winning platform, with its interconnected network fabric and suite of user applications, provides the ubiquitous reach and reliable connectivity required to move data to Cloud and application platforms worldwide.

RSVP for the Equinix-hosted panel Solving for Digital Disruption Through Interconnection on Tuesday, May 10 at 9:00 AM.

Meet with the Global Capacity team at ITW 2016 to learn more about delivering simple, dedicated, cost-effective Cloud connectivity to the enterprise.
