Global Capacity launches Connect Marketplace

11 May 2016 |


Global Capacity has launched Connect Marketplace, said to be the “next evolution” of its service lifecycle manager software, designed to simplify the design of multi-site architectures.

The Connect Marketplace is said to provide carriers and system integrators the visibility to understand and analyse available data connectivity services by location quickly and easily. The company claims that request for proposal processes will become obsolete as a result and will be replaced by online dynamic entry of enterprise requests and real-time results for informed buying.

“With Connect Marketplace, Global Capacity has delivered on its commitment of Connectivity Made Simple, making technology barriers disappear so anyone can create the network they need,” said Cornelia Pool, chief digital officer of Global Capacity.  “One Marketplace plays a critical role in next-generation WAN delivery by providing visibility into the right connectivity for the right applications at the right price at each location.”

Customers will have the ability to design purpose-built networks for applications such as voice, video, cloud, storage and retail point of sale with real-time requirement modelling to identify optimal network price and performance. Service options in the initial release include network cost, service technologies, latency, contract term and preferred interconnection points.

In addition Global Capacity is working with an ecosystem of partners to find better ways for businesses to connect to their destination of choice and simplify connectivity.
