Global Capacity Receives 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY TEM Excellence Award

One Marketplace Access Exchange Recognized for Outstanding Cost Saving Solutions

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jan 3, 2012) - Global Capacity, the world's leading telecommunications information and logistics Company, announces today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named One Marketplace Access Exchange as a recipient of the 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY TEM Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

One Marketplace Access Exchange is a transparent and efficient way to buy and sell global access solutions more cost effectively. The platform offers automated pricing, ordering and provisioning of access networks, easily accessible via an online interface, along with powerful network optimization algorithms. Through a common network interconnection into One Marketplace Access Exchange, customers can procure and implement multi-vendor access solutions more efficiently; saving money, increasing productivity, and gaining a competitive advantage.

"We are pleased to present Global Capacity with a 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY TEM Excellence Award. One Marketplace Access Exchange has proven its benefits and advancement of TEM, and delivers valuable solutions for its customers," comments Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.

By utilizing the automated optimization algorithms powered by the One Marketplace Access Exchange, Global Capacity is able to help companies identify more efficient network solutions for off-net access services. Specifically, Global Capacity can execute network optimization analyses that identify opportunities to reduce costs through network novation opportunities, as well as by identifying excess capacity that can be sold back into the market via the One Marketplace Access Exchange. By novating non-strategic off-net network assets to Global Capacity, customers can reduce costs while simplifying operations, enabling them to re-focus efforts on maximizing on-net services and other core competencies to better serve their customers. By identifying excess capacity within existing network inventories and loading it into One Marketplace Access Exchange, customers are able to monetize assets they have already paid for. This excess capacity, which is typically stranded and represents a sunk cost to the customer, can be sold into the market based on customer demand currently running through the One Marketplace Access Exchange, increasing revenue while effectively reducing the cost of that capacity.

"One Marketplace Access Exchange is designed and built to improve efficiency, while streamlining and optimizing the pricing, procurement and provisioning of access network services. The result is a direct improvement in EBITDA," states Patrick Shutt, Global Capacity CEO. "We're honored to be recognized by INTERNET TELEPHONY for this achievement."

"Global Capacity is recognized with an INTERNET TELEPHONY TEM Excellence Award for its achievements in advancing TEM solutions, and providing quality solutions in the marketplace," says Erik Linask, Editorial Director of INTERNET TELEPHONY.

The Third Annual INTERNET TELEPHONY TEM Excellence Award winners are published in the December 2011 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine,
