Global Capacity's One Marketplace Access Exchange Delivers Frame Relay Migration Solution

One Marketplace Solution Mitigates the Risk of Migration From Legacy Technology, Increasing Network Capacity, Improving QoS and Reducing Costs

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 8, 2012) - Global Capacity, the leading telecommunications information and logistics company, announces the availability of a Frame Relay migration solution that enables customers to seamlessly transition from legacy Frame Relay solutions to a lower cost, higher quality private network solution, delivered through Global Capacity's automated access network platform, One Marketplace Access Exchange.

Carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint have recently announced plans to discontinue legacy Frame Relay offerings, forcing customers to migrate to alternative network solutions. Global Capacity's One Marketplace Access Exchange offers a Frame Relay migration solution that delivers customers a flexible and cost effective way to migrate service while at the same time upgrade their underlying network infrastructure to support new revenue-generating, high-bandwidth services.

Global Capacity's solution includes a multi-phase migration plan that helps customers manage all aspects of the planning and execution of this technology migration. This plan encompasses an in-depth analysis of a customer's existing Frame Relay inventory, development of a comprehensive migration plan, and project management and execution of the physical circuit migration. The result delivers increased network capacity, improved quality of service (QoS) and lower cost per megabit on services going forward.

"Each customer is unique, with specific requirements and demands. Some customers novate their inventory immediately; others choose to work closely with our team to migrate circuit by circuit onto the One Marketplace platform," shares Greg Hough, Global Capacity's EVP of Network Strategy. "Either way, Global Capacity mitigates the risk of migration and delivers an efficient, competitive network today."

The higher network capacity and improved QoS enable carriers the flexibility to offer value-added, revenue generating services without the worries of oversubscription or service availability. In addition to addressing the short-term need of Frame Relay migration, One Marketplace Access Exchange provides an automated solution for access network pricing, ordering, provisioning and delivery of new services going forward. It leverages market-based rates from hundreds of suppliers interconnected to the platform to deliver automated rates and rapid service delivery. 

"By utilizing the automated optimization algorithms powered by One Marketplace Access Exchange, Global Capacity is able to help customers lower costs and increase bandwidth while concurrently increasing their off-net reach," comments Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. "Interconnecting to our One Marketplace Network often provides customers the most competitive rates, allowing them to secure a newly-found advantage over their competitors."
