Global Capacity has expanded its One Marketplace network with a metropolitan fiber ring in the Washington, D.C. area.
The 54-mile diversely routed fiber ring will interconnect the company’s Points of Presence (PoP) located within two data centers: the Level 3 1755 Old Meadow Road, McLean, Va. facility, and the Equinix Ashburn, Va. data center.
“We believe that Global Capacity will have a positive impact on the business community in the Washington, D.C. market,” said Ben Edmond, chief revenue officer of Global Capacity. “Global Capacity is aggressively investing in expanding metro fiber rings in several key markets because bandwidth consumption is on the rise and with our One Marketplace, customers gain reliable, more cost effective data connectivity services to meet their growing business needs.”
One Marketplace leverages an interconnected network aggregation platform with a suite of user applications aimed at the process of designing, pricing, procuring and delivering network connectivity. The suite of data connectivity solutions being offered to business customers by Global Capacity includes dedicated Internet access, Ethernet services and wavelength services along with data center and cloud connectivity solutions, with speeds scaling from 1Mbps to 10Gbps.
