Global Capacity Lights Metro Fiber Ring In Dallas
Enterprise demand for cloud connectivity drives One Marketplace™ network expansion between data centers.
Global Capacity has announced the expansion of its One Marketplace™ with a metro fiber ring in Dallas providing connectivity services. The network will connect at the Company’s new Point of Presence (PoP) located at 2323 Bryan Street and its existing One Marketplace PoP at 1950 North Stemmons Freeway to provide access and local loop capabilities for IP transit and traditional point-to-point bandwidth needs. The dedicated metro ring addresses growing enterprise demand for secure, scalable Cloud connectivity between multiple data center facilities within the Dallas-Fort Worth market.
The Dallas-Fort Worth region, one of the top 10 largest metro areas in the U.S. with over 10,000 business locations and 18 Fortune 100 corporate headquarters, has long been a major Internet and network peering exchange point. Global Capacity’s new PoP in the Univision building at 2323 Bryan Street provides an additional access point to One Marketplace with near-ubiquitous network reach to over 9.6 million commercial locations across the country.
“Customer demand for more competitively priced connectivity and lower latency in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro has fueled Global Capacity’s network expansion,” says Ben Edmond, chief revenue officer of Global Capacity. “Global Capacity will continue to expand the One Marketplace footprint in ways that complement our existing customers and suppliers, while maintaining the highest level of interconnectedness for near-ubiquitous reach.”
One Marketplace has the extensive network reach and innovative applications that provide real-time network pricing and ordering with end-to-end delivery of private Ethernet connectivity and IP services. With speeds scaling from 1.5 Mbps to 10 Gig, Global Capacity’s One Marketplace offers a flexible breadth of speeds and service attributes to meet customers’ connectivity needs for voice, data, Cloud and video traffic.
