07 October 2016 |


Global Capacity has announced a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Equinix's TR2 datacenter, Toronto, Canada.

Global Capacity, the connectivity as a service specialist, today announced the international expansion of its One Marketplace with a new Point of Presence (PoP) at 45 Parliament Street, Toronto, Canada, in Equinix’s TR2 datacenter.

Through a single, interconnect to the new Toronto One Marketplace PoP, businesses and service providers will benefit, the company claims, from its diverse 10Gbps Ethernet cross-border interconnection to One Marketplace in New York City and Chicago connecting them to over 9.6 million U.S. business locations and Cloud ecosystems, including Amazon Web Services.  Further, One Marketplace customers can now leverage Global Capacity’s core network for comprehensive connections to the vast, geographically dispersed Canadian marketplace, regardless of the location of their interconnection to One Marketplace.

“Demand for business Ethernet connectivity is prevalent throughout Canada,” said Patrick Hannon, chief revenue officer of Global Capacity: “Today, there are 445 US-based companies with revenues exceeding $10m who have more than 6,500 remote offices throughout Canada, in need of data connectivity.  This high-demand, key aggregation point enables delivery of diverse route options, competitive pricing and a broad selection of network services to One Marketplace customers.”

Global Capacity’s software-defined One Marketplace platform combines an interconnected, aggregated network with a service lifecycle application that simplifies the procurement of services.  One Marketplace provides buyers with a single interface through which to design, price and fulfill hybrid network solutions, and a single service agreement, SLA and consolidated billing for services across the globe.

“Global Capacity will continue to expand the One Marketplace footprint in ways that complement our existing customers and suppliers while maintaining the highest level of interconnectedness for near-ubiquitous reach,” said Tony Thakur, Chief Technology Officer of Global Capacity.
