Global Capacity Named MEF Excellence Award Finalist

Global Capacity is a finalist in the MEF 2016 Excellence Awards’ “Best Service Innovation” category for its Ethernet Cloud Connect service.

Leveraging a combination of established interconnects and software orchestration, Global Capacity’s MEF-compliant Ethernet Cloud Connect service simplifies cloud connectivity and delivers improved service performance and a better user application experience to customers.

An ecosystem of service providers is needed to connect business locations to all their computing, business application, voice and private cloud destinations. Global Capacity’s Ethernet Cloud Connect service combines the reliability and flexibility of multi-destination Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) with its One Marketplace direct interconnects to internet, cloud computing and cloud application providers to streamline commercial buying across the Cloud services ecosystem.

Customers start their design with a single Ethernet service, and with a click, can add more virtual services specifying unique speed and Class of Service (CoS) per destination.  Customers can connect to private cloud locations or select from a list of existing One Marketplace Cloud destinations. Existing One Marketplace Cloud service provider interconnects include AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Equinix Cloud Exchange, with additional cloud and application service provider interconnects to be added later.

“Global Capacity is honored to be recognized by MEF for the innovation of its One Marketplace platform in making cloud connectivity simple.” said Jack Lodge, president of Global Capacity. “As businesses continue to move computing and applications to the cloud, new challenges for enterprise networks and connectivity are created. Global Capacity is committed to continually developing new ways for businesses to achieve the level of flexible, secure and reliable connectivity their businesses require.”
