Glide and Connectbase forged alliance to revolutionize global network access with location-based insights and automation

In a groundbreaking collaboration set to redefine the landscape of network connectivity, Glide, the pioneering full-fibre business broadband and connectivity provider, has teamed up with Connectbase, The Industry Cloud for Connectivity. This strategic partnership positions Glide as the first UK network service provider to offer its services via Connectbase's innovative Configure Price Quote (CPQ) platform, aptly named 'The Connected World.' In essence, this union promises to streamline and expedite how service providers globally procure and manage connectivity services within the United Kingdom, introducing a new era of location-based intelligence and automated quoting.

Glide boasts a staggering 2,000 kilometers of dedicated fibre network spanning the UK, inclusive of 14 metropolitan dark fibre networks in major cities such as Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds. Furthermore, Glide's extensive fibre network extends its reach to approximately 400 business parks, hitherto underserved by other providers. With its multi-terabit network, Glide delivers last-mile connectivity to enterprise locations and campuses, achieving speeds of up to 100Gbit/s. This partnership enables service providers worldwide to harness Glide's expansive network footprint, ongoing fibre network expansions, and adaptable service delivery model, as available on The Connected World platform.

In a digital landscape that demands agility and efficiency, Glide's partnership with Connectbase marks a significant leap towards revolutionizing global network access. By offering an array of network services and connectivity options, Glide is providing a critical link for local and global organizations to achieve newfound flexibility in connecting users. On the other hand, Connectbase's 'The Connected World' platform unites over 300 connectivity buyers and sellers, underpinning a simplified approach to network planning and procurement, all within a streamlined, intelligent, and digitally-driven framework.
