Tw Telecom CEO Keynotes COMPTEL PLUS Fall 2012 Convention & EXPO

Stocks in this article: TWTC

DALLAS, Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Larissa Herda, Chairman, CEO and President of tw telecom, today keynoted the COMPTEL PLUS Fall 2012 Convention & EXPO in Dallas and called for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to embrace "smart, forward looking competitive telecom policy with price and service quality rules where incumbents have market power, regardless of technology used." tw telecom (NASDAQ: TWTC), is a leading provider of managed services, including Business Ethernet, converged and IP VPN solutions for enterprises, large organizations and government entities throughout the U.S.


"The FCC should establish technology-neutral policies, a principle that is central to the Telecom Act of 1996 and competition policy," Ms. Herda said. "The industry is moving from a physical infrastructure to a logical one. We're moving from circuits to services. Innovation is driving our success as a competitive industry." 

As part of this industry innovation, tw telecom recently introduced its Intelligent Network capabilities to give enterprises immediate visibility, control and flexibility of their networks. Imagine being able to immediately double or triple your network capacity, when you need it in seconds and to see it provisioned in real time without interrupting your service?  That is the promise of tw telecom's Intelligent Network and Dynamic Capacity real-time, on-demand bandwidth capability. 

"The market is changing," Ms. Herda said. "We as an industry must adapt to new technologies and capabilities as our customers adopt IT strategies for cloud services and solutions. And we must convince the FCC to update its competition rules to accommodate these changes." 

About half of all wide area networking ports in use by enterprises today need to become Ethernet ready in order to drive competition, deliver predictable network connections for emerging applications and create a healthy economy according to Ms. Herda.
