Global Capacity Expands North of the Border with Equinix

Global Capacity has announced the international expansion of its One Marketplace with a new Point of Presence (PoP) located at 45 Parliament Street in Toronto, in Equinix’s TR2 datacenter.

Through a single interconnect to the new Toronto One Marketplace PoP, businesses and service providers benefit from Global Capacity’s diverse 10Gbps Ethernet cross-border interconnection to One Marketplace in New York City and Chicago, connecting them to over 9.6 million U.S. business locations and Cloud ecosystems, including Amazon Web Services.

“Demand for business Ethernet connectivity is prevalent throughout Canada,” says Patrick Hannon, chief revenue officer of Global Capacity. “Today, there are 445 U.S.-based companies with revenues exceeding $10 million who have more than 6,500 remote offices throughout Canada, in need of data connectivity.  This high-demand, key aggregation point enables delivery of diverse route options, competitive pricing and a broad selection of network services to One Marketplace customers.”

One Marketplace streamlines service delivery and ensures the best customer experience by providing buyers of network connectivity with a single interface through which to design, price and fulfill hybrid network solutions, along with a single service agreement, SLA and consolidated billing for services across the globe.

“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,” said Tony Thakur, CTO of Global Capacity. “With speeds scaling from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps, Global Capacity’s award-winning One Marketplace Ethernet offers a breadth of service attributes to meet customers’ network transport needs for voice, data, cloud and video applications.”
