CAP - Telecommunications
Competitive Access Provider. This is sometimes known as an AAV, or Alternative Access Provider. CAP's provide an alternative means of establishing a connection between a user organization and an IXC (InterXchange Carrier), completely bypassing the ILEC (Incumbant Local Exchange Carrier). CAP's typically deploy high-capacity SONET fiber optic transmission systems in a ring topology.
