Global Capacity has announced that Jack Lodge, company president, will speak at Metro Connect USA 2016, to be held January 26-27, 2016 in Miami, FL. Lodge will participate in the panel titled, “Data Center Investment: The Next Step in Portfolio Expansion?” taking place Wednesday, January 27 at 11:45 a.m. Metro Connect is the definitive meeting place for the domestic wholesale market, bringing together C-level delegates from the metro fiber and local access markets in the U.S. to share insights and strategize for the year ahead.

Lodge will join a panel of industry-leading executives from EdgeConneX®, Schneider Electric, and New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) discussing the convergence and partnership of network providers and data centers to address growing content delivery demands. The session will also address how cloud migration from basement server rooms to data centers has driven the need for reliable connectivity between these facilities.

“Today, having insight, visibility and increased control over connectivity decisions has become a key success point in enabling the migration of enterprise application workloads out of corporate locations and into data centers,” said Lodge. “As service providers, it is up to us to build a winning, interconnected ecosystem that delivers customers the best cloud solutions and connects them to these solutions simply, efficiently, and cost-effectively.”

Global Capacity eliminates the complexity and inefficiency of the network market with its innovative, award-winning marketplace of networks, One Marketplace™. One Marketplace combines an interconnected, aggregated data network with a cloud-based application that automates the design, pricing, delivery and maintenance of network connectivity. The platform dramatically simplifies and accelerates the delivery of network services, fundamentally changing how service providers buy connectivity.
