Global Capacity (News - Alert), a network connectivity company, recently announced that its One Marketplace platform has been selected by Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a provider of voice, data, and networking services, for fast Ethernet, gigabit Ethernet and private line connectivity. With the solution, Granite will be able to streamline the process of off-net service procurement, which will help the company expand its data and IP products. The company will be able to provide services to over three million additional business locations and data centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Global Capacity's 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. 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.
"Granite is a leading national provider of telecommunications services to businesses and government agencies, and we look forward to partnering with them to deliver solutions that will connect them to customer locations better, faster and easier than ever," adds Jack Lodge, President for Global Capacity.
In related news, Global Capacity and INDATEL, a group of wholesale carriers dedicated to providing best-in-class, cost-effective transport connectivity, recently announced a new partnership that allows INDATEL to buy Ethernet services through One Marketplace interconnects in Chicago, Minneapolis and Dallas. The partnership between Global Capacity and INDATEL will provide Global Capacity's One Marketplace members access to INDATEL's 500+ Rural Local Exchange Carriers and 80,000 fiber optic route miles of middle-mile network serving over 5,000 communities nationally.
As much a value to INDATEL buying and expanding their network reach, One Marketplace also offers an opportunity to sell on-net services for INDATEL and leverage their Ethernet network assets and capacity. With interconnections to One Marketplace, INDATEL will gain the numerous competitive advantages.
