Global Capacity Continues One Marketplace Expansion Into Ashburn, Virginia

Expansion Fulfills Growing Demand for Competitive Metro Access

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, today announces the opening of a new One Marketplace Point of Presence (PoP) in Ashburn, VA at 21721 Filigree Ct., in Equinix's DC6 data center. Global Capacity's One Marketplace enables customers to take advantage of near-ubiquitous network access by combining an interconnected, physical network aggregation platform with a Cloud application that automates the design, pricing, delivery and maintenance of network solutions. One Marketplace provides network buyers and sellers with market-competitive network solutions, enabling both groups to expand the breadth and reach of their service capabilities while meeting growing supply and demand.

"The market acceptance of One Marketplace has been tremendous, with four new PoPs deployed in the last three months," says Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. "We believe that this acceptance has been driven by the pent-up demand for simple, transparent and automated procurement and delivery of cost-effective network connectivity."

In a recent survey, Alcatel-Lucent's Bell Labs revealed that data traffic on metro access is set to increase 560% by 2017, caused primarily by rising video usage and the growth of data centers. This growing customer demand for access network connectivity continues to drive Global Capacity's One Marketplace expansion. Ashburn, VA, a critical data center hub for Cloud connectivity services, content delivery, carrier hotels and back-up and recovery, offers superior connectivity to some of the largest telecom networks in the world as well as high concentrations of IT, biotech, federal government and international businesses.

"One Marketplace provides award-winning, competitively-priced, high-performance network solutions that support the exploding bandwidth requirements for wholesale and enterprise customers," adds Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity. "With the new hub in Ashburn, One Marketplace offers businesses in the Washington, D.C. area a broad range of service attributes to meet network transport needs for voice, data, storage and video applications."

Through a single, strategic interconnect to the Ashburn One Marketplace PoP, businesses and service providers benefit from Global Capacity's connectivity to over three million commercial Ethernet addresses and near-ubiquitous TDM reach. One Marketplace customers also gain direct access to more than 650 co-located companies and Cloud ecosystems including Amazon Web Services. With proximity to over 200 unique network carriers, 100 content and digital media companies and 140 Cloud and IT providers, Global Capacity's Ashburn PoP enables companies to connect with customers and partners throughout the U.S., providing direct access to key business areas such as Washington, D.C. and Metro New York as well as the largest peering exchange on the East Coast.
