Global Capacity's One Marketplace Delivers Cost-Effective Network Connectivity to BrightStar Communications

Interconnection to One Marketplace Enables Simple, Automated Process to Source Ethernet Access Services

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Feb 12, 2014) - Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, announces today that BrightStar Communications, a service provider offering network and Cloud solutions to meet the connectivity, bandwidth, and data needs of enterprise, small business, and the hospitality industry, has selected One Marketplace for cost-effective network connectivity. Through a single interconnect to One Marketplace, BrightStar gains unprecedented visibility into competitive market pricing, while expanding the breadth and reach of its network footprint.

One Marketplace arms BrightStar with accurate network data ensuring that the solutions put forth to its customers are the most competitive. The automated Cloud application benchmarks over 50 million price points from hundreds of suppliers, interconnecting only with the most competitive networks per geographic region. The platform also simplifies the ordering and provisioning of network services and tracks the performance for each circuit purchased -- all with a single SLA, service agreement, point of contact and full network management.

"BrightStar's partnership with Global Capacity further strengthens our commitment to clients like Courtyard by Marriott and Intercontinental Hotels and Resorts to provide the highest possible levels of service, no matter how large their bandwidth needs or where they are located," says Steve Simms, Vice President of Marketing at BrightStar Communications. "We chose Global Capacity because we saw the advantage of leveraging a fully automated and interconnected network platform to save time and simplify network procurement and delivery."

With a 10Gb Ethernet interconnect to One Marketplace at Global Capacity's newest Point of Presence (PoP), 21721 Filigree Ct. Ashburn, VA, BrightStar now has the ability to provide its customers with efficient design, pricing, delivery and management of network to transport WAN, Cloud connectivity and Internet services. At the same time the interconnection gives Global Capacity access to BrightStar's competitively-priced Ethernet access services.

"Global Capacity is pleased to support BrightStar in being exceptional at providing the best network and communication services to their clients," adds Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity. "Our relationship with BrightStar provides the opportunity to expand the breadth and reach of the network capabilities for both of our companies. We are honored to provide these business opportunities to both BrightStar and our other One Marketplace customers."
