tw telecom Adds 40- and 100-Gig Business Ethernet

June 28, 2013 - News

tw telecom inc. has introduced 40- and 100-gigabyte business Ethernet services in its 75 metro service areas. The faster speeds complement its current 2.5- and 10-gigabit intramarket Ethernet services.

tw telecom, one of the top three providers of business Ethernet throughout the U.S., according to industry analysts Vertical Systems Group and Frost & Sullivan, believes the higher speeds will benefit enterprises seeking private, secure and reliable network connects for big data applications.

"The addition of these faster speeds will enable enterprises to more efficiently and effectively connect headquarters, remote offices and data center locations across the metro for a variety of Big Data applications," said Graham Taylor, senior vice president for marketing at tw telecom. "We build our gigabit business Ethernet services in direct, point-to-point connections so the infrastructure remains highly efficient, enabling customers to get massive transmission speeds to deploy their equipment and solution anyway they need."

According to tw telecom, their gigabit business Ethernet services are designed and built using dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) technology that in essence turns the typical fiber network into a network of extremely high-speed, high-capacity private bandwidths. This service delivers real–time, predictable performance across the entire transmission path that is exclusive to the customer. The services are lit, fully-managed large capacity metro capabilities for the larger and more sophisticated enterprise customers and public sector organizations.
