Tw Telecom Launches Ubiquitous Availability Of National Ethernet Solution For Carriers





LITTLETON, Colo., Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  tw telecom , (NASDAQ: TWTC) a leading provider of managed services, including Business Ethernet, converged and IP VPN solutions for enterprises throughout the U.S. and globally, today announced wide availability of its newest national Ethernet service solution, called E-Access or "One to Many" Ethernet.  This service is designed to provide ubiquitous Business Ethernet reach across the United States to thousands of enterprise customers and buildings through a single Ethernet connection scalable to 10 Gig.  tw telecom is the first to offer national E-Access Ethernet connectivity based on the new MEF 33 standards.

tw telecom has teamed with Columbus Networks to offer the carrier an advanced resilient hub into a national footprint from their landing station in Miami.

"Our initial experience with tw telecom has enabled us to successfully connect to many U.S. customer locations from one network access point," said Peter Collins EVP and CTO of Columbus Networks.  "The uniqueness of E-Access provides us with additional seamless and scalable connectivity to extend our regional managed business solutions to customers with offices here in the USA." 

According to Nan Chen, President of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), MEF standards are designed to encourage development of ubiquitous Ethernet connectivity across the world.   " tw telecom's E-Access is an industry first in helping carriers reach thousands of enterprise buildings from one network access point instead of needing to have local network to network connections in each city or market." 

Through a single network connection in one location, tw telecom's Business Ethernet service is delivered to virtually any building or data center in the United States across tw telecom's 75 market national foot print.  The E-Access solution, based on MEF-compliant Ethernet Access standards, provides ready-made infrastructure for carriers to quickly and easily reach their end user locations across a secure, scalable and trusted network. 

"E-Access with an external network to network interface (ENNI) provides carrier, application, and data center service providers with a single point of access into tw telecom's vast national Ethernet footprint," said Tom Marx, President of tw telecom's Wholesale Services.  "These providers are recognizing the need for a secure and scalable network as they roll out business critical applications to their customers.  Many of these carriers typically do not have their own network to connect everywhere they need to go.  They look to tw telecom to deliver secure, scalable and predictable network connections and solutions that help them deliver applications to their customers."

"With tw telecom's E-Access, customers can avoid capital investments, reduce operating costs and more easily manage their network capability," Marx said.
