Global Capacity's One Marketplace Ethernet Service Receives Metro Connect Award for Best Service Innovation

Industry Recognizes Innovation of One Marketplace Ethernet and One Hub Interconnect as Well as Success of Cerner(R) Skybox Connect(TM)

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/05/14 -- Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, announces today that its One Marketplace Ethernet Service has been named 'Best Service Innovation' by Capacity magazine at the 2014 Metro Connect Awards. In addition to the win, Global Capacity was shortlisted for 'Project of the Year' for the Cerner® Skybox Connect™ project as well as 'Best Technology Innovation' for its One Hub Interconnection solution.

Global Capacity's One Marketplace was selected for its innovative approach and development of Ethernet Service within its marketplace of networks. The addition of Ethernet to the marketplace provides customers with the flexibility, speed and service options to cost-effectively extend Ethernet service reach across the globe. By combining an aggregated, interconnected, physical Ethernet network with a cloud application that automates the design, pricing, ordering, delivery and maintenance of Ethernet access services, One Marketplace eliminates the complexity and inefficiency found in the Ethernet access network market.

"Global Capacity is honored to have its One Marketplace platform be recognized among leading carriers and service providers as the Best Service Innovation," says Jack Lodge, President of Global Capacity. "This achievement is a testament to One Marketplace's tremendous acceptance and positive impact on the market, as well as its continued recognition for innovation in improving the simplicity of procuring Ethernet services in order to drive the continued growth of Carrier Ethernet."

Capacity magazine is a leading publication focused on the global wholesale telecommunications market and carrier-to-carrier business. Its 2014 Metro Connect Awards celebrate the innovation, excellence and vision of companies within the North American telecommunications marketplace, honoring their outstanding performance, successes and achievements over the last 12 months.

According to Capacity magazine's News Editor Kavit Majithia, "Global Capacity's One Marketplace continues to provide customers with flexibility, speed and reliability to cost-effectively deliver Ethernet services across the globe and continues to innovate its offering year after year, making it the standout winner."

The Metro Connect Awards also recognized Global Capacity as a finalist for 'Project of the Year' for its deployment of Cerner® Skybox Connect™. The project was recognized for its private network design, flawless delivery of health care cloud services and successful network migration, as well as One Marketplace's ability to design, price, procure and manage the network connectivity across multiple access networks. Global Capacity's One Hub interconnection was the runner-up for 'Best Technology Innovation'; the solution offers customers the flexibility to procure both Ethernet and TDM-based access services over an Ethernet interconnection and migrate to an Ethernet core and access services while still being able to utilize legacy TDM end links without additional, redundant equipment.
