UNSi Selects Global Capacity's One Marketplace for Extended Network Reach

Interconnection to Global Capacity's One Marketplace Enables UNSi to Achieve Critical Business Goals

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2013) - Global Capacity, the leading telecommunications information and logistics company, today announces it has been selected by United Network Services, Inc. (UNSi), a next generation carrier and provider of "intelligent & flexible" Internet and managed services, as one of their Ecosystem Partners to help strengthen the reach of its network, and enable the efficient delivery of both TDM and Ethernet services in select parts of the mid-west region. With an interconnection to Global Capacity's One Marketplace at its Chicago Point of Presence (PoP) and utilization of the automated pricing and service delivery platform, UNSi is able to extend the capacity and reach of its "intelligent access" MPLS Exchange Platform (MEP).

Global Capacity's One Marketplace offers automated pricing and streamlined service delivery of global network connectivity. The automation capabilities improve pricing and delivery efficiencies while reducing the cost of procuring access networks globally. With transparent visibility into access network pricing and availability, One Marketplace offers network capacity across multiple networks and geographies. This visibility arms UNSi with accurate, automated data to ensure that the rates put forth to its customers are the most competitive.

"Global Capacity's One Marketplace has been instrumental in expanding UNSi's network reach and decreasing our overall time to market," says Allan Schwartz, SVP of Strategic Planning & Business Development for UNSi. "One Marketplace has also played a key role in solving our TDM abilities covering specific areas of the US market, which has been a growing need for us over the last few quarters. At the same time, One Marketplace positions us well to capitalize on new opportunities that continue to come our way."

With One Marketplace, UNSi is able to extend its access network efficiently and cost-effectively with streamlined service delivery that includes a single service agreement and consistent ordering, provisioning, turn-up and support across multiple access networks. UNSi's interconnection to One Marketplace enables Global Capacity to deliver additional network access solutions such as higher bandwidth private lines to better support UNSi's overall network demand.

"Global Capacity is excited to support UNSi in its achievement of critical corporate initiatives including network reach and product expansion," adds Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity. "Global Capacity's One Marketplace offers UNSi access to competitive network quotes in real-time and a streamlined service delivery for the best customer experience. This allows UNSi to be more responsive and accurate in supporting customers and decreasing their overall time to market."
