Global Capacity Releases the Next Evolution of Its Service Lifecycle Manager -- Connect Marketplace

Connect Application Software and API Get an Upgrade With the Industry's Most Powerful Network Design Application

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 10, 2016) - Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces the release of Connect Marketplace, the next evolution of its award-winning service lifecycle manager software, purpose-built to simplify the design of multi-site architectures. The new Connect Marketplace empowers customers to quickly identify, price and order network connectivity, all from one view with more intelligence and less risk.

Connect Marketplace provides carriers, service providers and system integrators the visibility to fully understand and analyze available data connectivity services by location quickly and easily. Better visibility means a better way to plan customer network connectivity, thereby maximizing revenue. Customers can now design purpose-built networks for applications such as voice, video, cloud, storage, and retail point of sale with real-time requirement modeling to identify optimal network price and performance. Service options modeled in the initial release include network cost, service technologies, latency, contract term and preferred interconnection points.

"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," says 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."

What makes Connect Marketplace the most powerful network design application?

  • One transparent view of hundreds of services and technologies for ease of design
  • Click and drag bulk upload for thousands of locations
  • Visualize inventory of sites with geographic mapping
  • Custom filters allow for "what if" network modeling and informed decision-making
  • Save project design options, export and share to make your buying decision 
  • Single click to get your network order started

Global Capacity is working together with its growing ecosystem of partners to define new and better ways for businesses to connect to their destination of choice and simplify connectivity. With Connect Marketplace, Request for Proposal (RFP) processes become obsolete, replaced by online dynamic entry of enterprise requests and real-time results for informed buying.
