Expansion Driven by the Growing Demand for Access Network Solutions in New York Metro
Chicago, IL, USA, September 27, 2012 - Global Capacity, the leading telecommunications information and logistics company, announces today the expansion of the One Marketplace Access Exchange with a new Point of Presence (PoP) at 60 Hudson Street, New York. The expansion includes network interconnections with Sidera Networks, the premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, and Telx, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and data center solutions.
Driving Global Capacity's expansion is the ever-growing demand for capacity in and throughout the New York City metro area. In the past six months, One Marketplace Access Exchange, an automated platform that connects customers and suppliers and enables efficient pricing, procurement, provisioning and management of access networks, has been experiencing increased quote volume of 155% in the New York metro area. These market-based, competitive quotes represent automated pricing from over 200 global suppliers, and have a monthly recurring value of over $220 million per month.
This New York City PoP delivers an additional strategic connectivity point to Global Capacity's existing One Marketplace Access Exchange, providing bi-directional delivery capability to fulfill market competitive opportunities for buyers and sellers. The platform enables both groups to meet increased supply and demand while expanding the breadth and reach of their network capabilities. Furthermore, it offers carriers automated, competitive access solutions and allows Global Capacity to procure services from carriers based on member demand - forming mutually beneficial business partnerships.
"With an interconnection to One Marketplace Access Exchange, Sidera Networks is able to extend its access network with competitive quotes from multiple vendors in seconds," comments Clint Heiden, President of Sidera Networks. "At the same time, this interconnection allows us to aggregate and actively market our, unique ultra-low latency network and diverse New York/New Jersey metro routes through the marketplace."
Les Williams, Product Director for Telx, continues, "Connecting with Global Capacity enables the global Telx community access connectivity to locations served by One Marketplace, translating to increased competitive advantage and faster time to market."
"The One Marketplace Access Exchange continues to set the standard for enabling an efficient and transparent access market," adds Patrick Shutt, CEO of Global Capacity. "As part of Global Capacity's strategic plan to grow One Marketplace in ways that complement our existing customers and suppliers, the addition of a hub in New York City makes perfect sense."
