CHICAGO, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Capacity, Inc. (parent: Capital Growth Systems, Inc.) (OTC Bulletin Board: CGSY) the world's leading telecommunications information and logistics company, today announced additional expansion of its flagship network delivery product, One Marketplace.  This expansion is driven by orders from a major international network integrator, who is leveraging One Marketplace to affect a network redesign of its North American network that connects U.S. locations to sites in 30 countries around the globe. The context of these orders is a business solution that will increase efficiency and reduce cost, enabling the client to close unnecessary and costly infrastructure by migrating the client's network to the Global Capacity's One Marketplace platform, where it will be aggregated with other Global Capacity customers.  These orders will fuel an expansion of One Marketplace capacity, including new interconnections with a strategic regional supplier in the mid-west.

"These orders reflect the essential elements of the Global Capacity business model as we have focused it for 2010," said Jack Lodge, Chief Operating Officer and head of service delivery for Global Capacity.  "To fully understand the scope and value of this solution, you must look at it in the greater context of the global telecommunications industry."

Elisabeth Simao, Global Capacity Information Head, noted that "Global Capacity's information reach extends into 195 countries and this business intelligence is the basis of the value proposition that this client has embraced."

This expansion is in-line with Global Capacity's 2010 strategy to build on the momentum achieved by One Marketplace, as evidenced by the 160% growth rate experienced in 2009.  Driven by robust demand across new and existing customers, One Marketplace continues to increase capacity, leveraging interconnections with a growing number of strategic partners to expand the breadth and depth of cost effective network options available to customers participating in One Marketplace.  

"We are pleased to add both a new customer and a new supplier to One Marketplace, building on our success with this product in 2009," said Patrick Shutt, Global Capacity Chief Executive Officer.  "One Marketplace combines the core assets of Global Capacity - our information, systems and expertise - to deliver innovative solutions to our customers that increase the flexibility and efficiency of their network, while reducing overall costs."
