Global Capacity Expands Market Presence With International Point of Presence in Toronto, Canada

Demand for Competitive Ethernet Connectivity Drives One Marketplace™ Expansion

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2016) -  Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces the international expansion of its One Marketplace with a new Point of Presence (PoP) located at 45 Parliament Street, Toronto, Canada, in Equinix's TR2 datacenter. As one of the top cities in the Americas for economic potential and infrastructure, Toronto provides an ideal business environment to serve companies doing business in Canada's largest financial, networking and cloud computing market.

Through a single, strategic interconnect to the new Toronto One Marketplace PoP, businesses and service providers benefit from Global Capacity's diverse 10Gbps Ethernet cross-border interconnection to One Marketplace in New York City and Chicago connecting them to over 9.6 million U.S. business locations and Cloud ecosystems, including Amazon Web Services. Further, One Marketplace customers can now leverage Global Capacity's core network for easy and comprehensive connections to the vast, geographically dispersed Canadian marketplace, regardless of the location of their interconnection to One Marketplace. Destinations are accessible with one fast connection, allowing global businesses the flexibility, high performance and network reliability necessary to remain competitive in the global marketplace.

"Demand for business Ethernet connectivity is prevalent throughout Canada," says Patrick Hannon, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity. "Today, there are 445 U.S.-based companies with revenues exceeding $10 million who have more than 6,500 remote offices throughout Canada, in need of data connectivity. This high-demand, key aggregation point enables delivery of diverse route options, competitive pricing and a broad selection of network services to One Marketplace customers."

Global Capacity's intelligent software-defined One Marketplace platform eliminates the complexity and inefficiency of buying network connectivity by combining interconnected, aggregated network with a service lifecycle application that simplifies the procurement of network services. One Marketplace streamlines service delivery and ensures the best customer experience by providing buyers with a single interface through which to design, price and fulfill hybrid network solutions, along with a single service agreement, SLA and consolidated billing for services across the globe.

"Global Capacity will continue to expand the One Marketplace footprint in ways that complement our existing customers and suppliers, while maintaining the highest level of interconnectedness for near-ubiquitous reach," shares Tony Thakur, Chief Technology Officer of Global Capacity. "With speeds scaling from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps, Global Capacity's award-winning One Marketplace Ethernet offers a breadth of service attributes to meet customers' network transport needs for voice, data, cloud and video applications."
