Global Capacity adds San Francisco fiber ring

Global Capacity says it has expanded its One Marketplace service footprint with the addition of a diverse-route, 72-mile fiber ring in San Francisco. The fiber-optic network services provider says the San Francisco build means it has lit more than 210 miles of fiber in seven major metropolitan areas, including Dallas, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and now San Francisco.

Global Capacity uses the fiber cable infrastructure to provide data connectivity services to support Internet, video, voice, and cloud applications (see, for example, "Global Capacity adds MPLS VPN to service mix"). The company says its rings connect key network hubs, carrier hotels, and local service offices (LSOs) with high-demand data centers. Connectivity options include broadband, Ethernet over copper (EoC), and T1 as well as core high-bandwidth Ethernet and wavelength services.

"Global Capacity is aggressively investing in building out metro fiber in several key markets precisely because there is high customer demand for our services in those locations," says Patrick Hannon, chief revenue officer of Global Capacity. "Expanding our network presence allows Global Capacity to offer services that enable our customers' solutions -- voice, data, and the cloud -- at any speed from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps."
