Chicago, IL, USA, November 10, 2011 – Global Capacity, the world’s leading telecommunications information and logistics Company, announces today that it has integrated Ethernet services into its One Marketplace Access Exchange platform. Leveraging the collective market reach of its 32 Ethernet vendor partners (and growing), Global Capacity provides automated Ethernet quotes, on an individual case basis, to enable the efficient and cost effective quoting of Ethernet services.
“We are seeing a real shift in market demand toward Ethernet,” states Julie Dillenbeck, Vice President of Carrier Relations for Global Capacity. “Entering 2011, Ethernet quotes made up less than 1% of total quote demand run through One Marketplace Access Exchange, but over the course of the year, we have seen Ethernet quotes double in volume, and we expect Ethernet quotes to account for 40% of total quote demand in 2012.”
One Marketplace Access Exchange now provides customers automated access to customized Ethernet pricing based on customer-specific requirements. These requirements include location data, supplier rates, and design and engineering rules that are unique to that customer. Implementing the customized quote management platform effectively eliminates the manual process of generating quotes. One Marketplace Access Exchange provides companies with fast, accurate, automated pricing for Ethernet access circuits, vastly improving a company’s response time to customer requests and reducing back-office costs.
“One Marketplace Access Exchange was designed and built to improve efficiency, while effectively streamlining and optimizing the pricing, procurement and provisioning of access network elements,” states Greg Hough, EVP of Global Network Strategy for Global Capacity. “As the industry evolves and moves toward more advanced and universal transport protocols, One Marketplace has evolved to meet this demand. Our current Ethernet capabilities provide just a glimpse into what our future capabilities will become.”
Global Capacity will soon provide network operators the ability to strategically interconnect to the One Marketplace Access Exchange, enabling Ethernet services to be quoted, ordered and provisioned through a single exchange platform. This unique dynamic will facilitate revenue growth by exposing on-net Ethernet services to automated market demand, while improving EBITDA performance through lower operating expenses.
