Global Capacity Recognized for Most Innovative SMB Service

Light Reading Singles Out High-Performance, Cost-Competitive Asymmetrical Ethernet Service 

Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, announces today that it has been named a 2016 Leading Lights Most Innovative SMB Service Award finalist for its Asymmetrical Ethernet Service.  The Leading Lights Awards are the next-generation communications industry's most coveted honor.  Light Reading's reputation for fiercely independent analysis of products and companies it covers makes this one of the most credible and authoritative awards programs in the industry.

Global Capacity’s Asymmetrical Ethernet Service provides a lower-cost Ethernet connectivity option for business customers looking for higher speeds and better SLAs.  The service fills the gap for businesses where other broadband services fall short by offering true business-class uptime guarantees and application support at speeds up to 50/10 Mbps.

Asymmetrical Ethernet is the right connectivity solution for businesses that are increasing their use of cloud-based business applications and Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies including Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).  Built for performance, Asymmetrical Ethernet supports Class of Service (CoS), delivering better performance and providing business-class uptime guarantees for multiple applications like VoIP, video and MPLS VPN.

“Global Capacity is honored to be recognized by Light Reading with one of the year’s most innovative connectivity services for business,” states Pat Hannon, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity.  “Our broad portfolio of network access services provides customers with the right connectivity for the right destination at the right price.”

Global Capacity’s Asymmetrical Ethernet service is available with optional 4G LTE wireless backup service, providing customers with redundant backup with managed failover to ensure that critical revenue-generating business operations are maintained in the event of a primary service disruption.  With this bundled connectivity service, Global Capacity’s customers can rest assured that they have a cost-effective, resilient connectivity service with failover and the ability to have applications continue to perform in the event of an outage.

With Global Capacity’s recent network investment increasing the availability of its Ethernet Services across a nationwide footprint, Asymmetrical Ethernet Services are now being delivered to commercial addresses across 58 metro markets in 28 states.

Award winners will be announced on Monday, May 23 at the Leading Lights Awards dinner being held at the Hotel Ella in Austin, Texas, coinciding with Light Reading’s Big Communications Event (BCE).
