  • (1888PressRelease) May 16, 2017 - Waltham, MA, USA - Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces the expansion of seven One Marketplace™ Points of Presence (PoPs) in its extensive North American network, including six Ethernet local access aggregation points and three high performance Ethernet Backbone points purposely built for the most demanding Cloud, Over-the-Top applications and data services. The locations now Ethernet-enabled include Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA, Minneapolis, MN, and three new PoPs in Boston, MA, Kansas City, MO, and Vienna, VA. The locations added to the high performance Ethernet backbone include Kansas City, MO, Minneapolis, MN and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    These high-demand, key aggregation points enable delivery of diverse route options, competitive pricing and a broad selection of network access services to One Marketplace customers. Ethernet is the technology of choice for SD-WAN, Hybrid WAN and Cloud Connectivity solutions. The popularity of these enterprise services drives Global Capacity's continued expansion and investment. The company's investment in expanding its backbone PoPs and enabling greater Ethernet access is a testament to Global Capacity's commitment to deliver ubiquitous coverage, flexible access options, and simplified service activation and management to both enterprise and service provider customers.
