Global Capacity has built a presence in the Bay Area by establishing a new point of presence (PoP) for its One Marketplace platform at Equinix's (Nasdaq: EQIX) Silicon Valley 5 (SV5) data center in San Jose, Calif..
Driven by growing demand for network connectivity, the new One Marketplace PoP at 9 Great Oaks Boulevard has interconnections with an established local exchange provider and major cable company network.
Out of this PoP, customers will be able to access to over 140 network service providers, 400 cloud providers, 600 IT service providers and Equinix's interconnections to one of the largest Internet exchanges and peering points.
As a symbiotic relationship, any customer that resides in the Equinix campus in San Jose from the SV1 to SV5 data centers will be able to gain access to One Marketplace by ordering a cross-connect.
Network expansion has been a key theme at Global Capacity. To support the core national network platform over which One Marketplace runs, the service provider deployed an additional 30 Gbps of capacity across two of its core, interconnected diverse national rings in July.
The Bay Area has seen a bevy of network upgraded and expansion activity recently. In addition to Global Capacity, tw telecom (Nasdaq: TWTC) and Integra Telecom recently announced they would extend their fiber networks to various locations, including San Jose.
