Chicago, IL, USA, October 27, 2014 - Global Capacity, the leading network connectivity company, announces that its Chief Revenue Officer, Ben Edmond, will be speaking at the Global Ethernet Networking 2014 (GEN14) conference, to be held November 17-20, 2014 at the Gaylord National in Washington, D.C.  MEF GEN14 is the global gathering of the Carrier Ethernet (CE) community defining the future of network-enabled cloud, data and mobile services powered by the convergence of CE 2.0, Software-defined Networking (SDN) and virtualization technologies.
