"This network extension and capabilities will give them unprecedented real-time visibility, control and flexibility of their network to become more efficient in serving their customers and in growing their businesses."

tw telecom's Business Ethernet provides secure, scalable, predictable network connections for any enterprise needing connectivity to remote locations, data centers and to the cloud. tw telecom recently introduced its Intelligent Network suite of services that is delivered over the firm's Business Ethernet network. These capabilities include Enhanced Management and Dynamic Capacity.
Enhanced Management allows customers the ability to immediately view their entire network – end to end, and segment by segment – and to monitor the overall performance of their network in real-time. Dynamic Capacity, a unique bandwidth-on-demand solution, allows subscribers to increase their bandwidth as needed up to three times their subscribed data rate. This is performed in seconds by accessing the tw telecom customer portal. After the event occurs, whether scheduled or unscheduled, the customer returns to the original committed data rate. Neither capability affects the customer's service or quality of transmission.
"tw telecom is recognized for the level of superior customer service we provide," added Oberg. "Our new fiber connectivity provides a highly reliable and resilient network connection that supports our local businesses and helps them grow their business in an 'intelligent' way."
