Global Capacity Increases Availability of Ethernet Services Across Nationwide Footprint

Network Investment in 830 Central Offices Addresses Customer Needs for Increased Speed and Performance

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces its nationwide Ethernet service expansion, further strengthening its standing as the leading Ethernet over Copper (EoC) solutions provider in the U.S. Global Capacity's investment in Central Office facility equipment enables it to leverage the qualifying existing copper infrastructure to deliver from 1 Mbps up to 100 Mbps access directly to customers, enabling the most demanding Cloud, Over-the-Top applications and data services, including Ethernet Private Line (EPL), VoIP, SIP, Internet access, MPLS and VPLS (VPN). 

"Bandwidth consumption is on the rise, and with our network service expansion, customers can access higher speeds to maintain their competitive edge," explains Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. "Global Capacity will continue to expand services and coverage in 2016 to address the demand for reliable, scalable Ethernet access -- the service of choice to connect to key destinations including private and public Cloud, business applications, Internet and data centers." 

With this expansion, Global Capacity increases the density of its Ethernet services footprint, making the following services available to an additional 230,000 new commercial addresses across 58 metro markets in 28 states:

  • Ethernet over Copper (EoC): Offers symmetric speeds ranging from 1 Mbps up to 100 Mbps to over 2.2 million business addresses. Global Capacity Ethernet over Copper affords businesses with access to high-bandwidth, resilient and cost-efficient service. EoC gives businesses without fiber connectivity stronger, high-speed options. Service based on location availability.

  • Asymmetric Ethernet (AsyE): Offers asymmetric speed up to 50/10 Mbps. Global Capacity Asymmetric Ethernet fills the gap for businesses where other broadband services fall short. It offers true business-class uptime guarantees and application support. Service based on location availability.

  • Ethernet over DS1 (EoDS1): Offers symmetric speeds from 1.5 Mbps up to 12 Mbps. Global Capacity Ethernet over DS1 with near-ubiquitous coverage is the perfect solution for businesses seeking performance, simplicity and value without the distance limitations of other technologies. Dedicated access means less latency.

In addition to direct private line and broadband services, Network, Cloud, Application and Over-the-Top (OTT) service providers can establish one or more Ethernet Network-to-Network Interfaces (NNIs) with Global Capacity to drive down access charges and reach more than 9.8 million business locations.
