Global Capacity

Chicago, IL, USA, May 12, 2015 Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces the 25th anniversary of LATTIS, the oldest application of Global Capacity’s award-winning suite of connectivity applications.  LATTIS, the telecommunications industry’s preeminent database of global tariff rates, streamlines the ability to deliver accurate tariff quotes to customers in a quick and cost-effective way, reducing the time, effort and cost of identifying and sourcing access network solutions. 

LATTIS, the first graphical interface pricing tool in the history of the telecom industry, started with a handful of tariffs and two loyal customers at its 1990 release.  Over the last 25 years, the LATTIS software has expanded to cover over 325 tariffs across more than 300 carriers including Federal Communications Commission (FCC), state, local exchange and unbundled local loop tariffs for Ethernet, Local Private Line, Special Access, Switched Access, Inter-LATA Long-haul, SONET Ring and Wavelength services.

“LATTIS has proven to be an indispensible resource for carriers, integrators and service providers around the world, providing unmatched transparency into the fragmented access market,” states Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity.  “Global Capacity takes great satisfaction in celebrating what is both a company and industry milestone and we look forward to ensuring that LATTIS remains the industry standard for another 25 years.”

More than 4,500 end-users know that LATTIS provides a one-stop solution for accurate US tariff pricing, eliminating the need for multiple systems and cumbersome manual processes.  Having an accurate understanding of tariff rates is the core foundation of access network pricing.  Quickly and accurately calculating tariff rates allows service providers around the world to improve the time it takes to deliver quotes to customers, resulting in increased business wins and an improvement in overall client satisfaction.
