We just announced tw telecom’s major award win yesterday, for receiving Light Reading’s Leading Lights Award 2012 Public Company of the Year.   And today we are proud to inform the industry of tw telecom’s win of the prestigious 2012 North America Carrier Ethernet Award for Best Ethernet Business Application.  The annual award was presented by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) during the Ethernet Expo New York at the New York Hilton.    

tw telecom was recognized for its unique Dynamic Capacity bandwidth-on-demand service that allows enterprise customers to double or triple their network capacity in seconds to meet immediate business demands or to schedule increased bandwidth for business applications or a certain ad-hoc need.   They can then return to their original committed information rate in seconds.  This capability does not affect a customer’s service or quality of transmission. 

 “Dynamic Capacity is one of our Intelligent Network capabilities that deliver customers real-time visibility, flexibility and control of their network performance,” said Mike Rouleau, tw telecom Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategy.   “This capability is what customers need to become more efficient in serving their customers and in growing their businesses.” 

“MEF received submissions involving many innovative applications across numerous vertical markets, showcasing how Carrier Ethernet services are delivering substantial business value.  It is great to see innovators like tw telecom rewarded for the industry leadership,” said Nan Chen, MEF President. 

The 2012 MEF Carrier Ethernet Awards recognize excellence and leadership in the development, marketing and delivery of Carrier Ethernet Services.  The awards are judged by panels of independent industry analysts and presented annually in North America (NA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) and the Caribbean and Latin America (CALA) regions.
