WOW! selects Global Capacity to expand network footprint
Sep 27, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
WOW!, a cable provider in the US, has selected Global Capacity, a provider of network connectivity, to expand the reach of its network footprint and connect its on-net assets to a wider national and global market.
WOW!'s interconnect to Global Capacity's One Marketplace Chicago Point of Presence (PoP) enables the efficient delivery of higher bandwidth private line and Ethernet services. Global Capacity's One Marketplace provides automated pricing and streamlined service delivery as well as transparent visibility into on-net buildings and service availability for networks. Furthermore, One Marketplace's visibility arms WOW! with real-time industry intelligence on market price, demand and supply, allowing the cable provider to decrease its overall time to market and sell its services more competitively.
The same interconnection will supply Global Capacity with services on WOW!'s infrastructure of over 40,000 miles of fiber assets across 18 markets in the Midwest and Southeast.
"Global Capacity is a valuable cornerstone partner that understands the wholesale and business model while realizing the intrinsic value of our mutual partnership," comments Brad Cheedle, Senior vice president, Business Services, of WOW! "With an interconnection to One Marketplace, WOW! is able to validate the buildings within our network footprint and increase the on-net inventory accessibility for Global Capacity's customers through our 150,000 buildings."
"Our relationship with WOW! provides the opportunity to expand the breadth and reach of network capabilities for both of our companies," adds Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity. "Global Capacity's One Marketplace platform enables WOW! to leverage an automated process to streamline and simplify network operations while simultaneously gaining access to an entire marketplace of networks, allowing for the best customer experience at all transaction points."
