The Overture 6000 was chosen to become part of Global Capacity’s One Hubsolution, offering customers the options of 1 or 10 Gig ENNIs connecting to more than3,000,000 addresses in the U.S. with native Ethernet services. Over the same interconnect,service providers can procure and connect all of their TDM network needs through OneMarketplace’s nearly ubiquitous footprint.By deploying the Overture 6000 in its network, Global Capacity will bring MEF-certifiedperformance assured Ethernet services to existing customers currently being served over anyTDM access. Ethernet service can be delivered to up to 672 end-customers not directlyconnected to the fiber network using a single compact 2RU Overture 6000 platform.
