Utilizing this resilient, nation-wide network, tw telecom recently launched its Dynamic Capacity bandwidth-on-demand solution for Business Ethernet E-line customers across the country. Dynamic Capacity, the second phase of the firm's Intelligent Network portfolio, allows customers to immediately double or triple their network capacity in response to business activity peaks and demands, and then return to their original committed base rate as they choose, all without interrupting their network connections or service. "Imagine being able to increase network capacity in seconds," said Mike Rouleau, tw telecom Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategy. "Dynamic Capacity customers don't have to imagine; they do it. Our MyPortal feature also allows CIOs to see the cost impacts of these changes so the company can budget more closely and allocate costs more efficiently for a marketing promotion or other high bandwidth activity." "To support the rapid proliferation of networked business applications, IT professionals increasingly need better real time visibility and control of their networks," said Erin Dunne, Director of Research Services, Vertical Systems Group. "A significant challenge is how to efficiently manage network bandwidth capacity in response to new Cloud apps or changes in existing applications. tw telecom addresses these needs with its Intelligent Network capabilities. Specifically, Dynamic Capacity is a unique capability that enables CIOs to look into their network metrics in real time and then allocate Ethernet bandwidth capacity on-demand." "The key to mission-critical communications is secure, scalable and predictable network connections," Meldrum said. "This webinar series will explain how enterprises can do this seamlessly between their locations, data centers and clouds."
