Chicago, IL, USA, July 22, 2014 – Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, and National Cable Television Cooperative, Inc. (NCTC), a cooperative of independent cable operators, today announce a new master service agreement that allows NCTC members and affiliates to expand network service coverage throughout North America. Leveraging its One Marketplace, Global Capacity enables the efficient, cost-effective pricing and procurement of network connectivity for NCTC and its over 950-member cooperative.
NCTC is a not-for-profit corporation that provides member cable companies access to programming networks and industry-leading technology organizations and products. One Marketplace enables the efficient pricing, ordering and provisioning of connectivity services leveraging a unique API that integrates into NCTC’s Bandwidth Broker Desk Program. The Bandwidth Broker Desk Program was launched to enable the cooperative to secure better broadband access and connectivity, and overcome expanding geographic demands, regulatory restrictions and new service requirements. The One Marketplace platform provides NCTC with ubiquitous network solutions by way of competitive quotes in a matter of seconds, while simultaneously providing transparency into pricing and visibility into available capacity across multiple networks and geographies.
“Network reach and automated pricing coupled with highly competitive rates make Global Capacity’s One Marketplace an invaluable competitive advantage for our members,” says Corey McCarthy, NCTC CFO & SVP of Business Development. “We are glad to have them as part of the Bandwidth Broker Desk Program we offer our members.”
Global Capacity’s One Marketplace eliminates the complexity and inefficiency of buying network connectivity by combining an interconnected, aggregated network with a Cloud application that automates the procurement of network services. One Marketplace streamlines service delivery and ensures the best client experience by providing customers with a single interface through which to design, price and fulfill multi-network, multi-geography requirements, as well as a single SLA, contract and point of contact.
“Demand for expanded geographic coverage and over-the-top business applications is creating a need for greater service provider partnering,” says Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer for Global Capacity. “Our partnership with NCTC opens up new business and revenue opportunities for rural cable and video operators across the US.”
