Global Crossing is enriching its Fast-Track Services portfolio for service provider customers with the addition of Global Crossing Connect Solutions integrated audio, Web and video conferencing services, as well as a newly enhanced uCommand self-service portal.
The newly available unified communications solutions are a family of applications built on a scalable, standard application programming interface (API) that Global Crossing says enable a faster, integrated and seamless collaboration experience. The downloadable applications Global Crossing Connect Desktop, Global Crossing Connect Mobile and Global Crossing Connect Outlook Add-In expand how customers can use Global Crossing Ready-Access and Global Crossing Web Meeting collaboration services.
“Global Crossing Connect Solutions represent a strategic step in our vision to provide a best-in-class collaboration experience for our customers around the world, and reinforces GPP as an industry leading partner program,” said Omar Altaji, Global Crossing’s managing director, Worldwide Carrier Services. ”Our global IP-based platform enables us to be an influential player in the development of leading-edge solutions that enhance the way the world works and communicates.”
Global Crossing, which last month agreed to be purchased by Level 3 Communications in a $3 billion merger, says its Global Partner Program gives regional service providers the benefits of global reach, service expansion, reduced time-to-market and the ability to build a network or add service capabilities without significant investment. GPP serves more than 70 partners across all regions of the globe, with whom the company has established more than 160 Network-to-Network Interconnects (NNIs). More than 1,200 enterprise end-customers (global and regional Fortune 1000) are being served by GPP.
Global Crossing also has recently expanded the uCommand customer portal, its online account management tool that gives customers access to network management and services. It gives carrier customers the ability to price extended-reach solutions that complement their on-net services for enterprise clients.
