Today’s CIOs are faced with a growing set of application requirements and network demands to support the needs of their business. Many businesses are looking to the cloud as a way to rapidly introduce new applications in a more cost-effective way, but are quickly realizing the public Internet cannot support the security, reliability and management tools they need to support their mission-critical applications. tw telecom’s (News - Alert) Intelligent Network provides visibility, flexibility and control to help you maximize your application performance.
One of the three largest business Ethernet providers in the U.S., tw telecom was recently named the winner of the 2012 North America Carrier Ethernet Award for Best Ethernet Business Application, which recognizes partnerships between service providers and their clients in the delivery of carrier Ethernet services for application verticals.
tw telecom was recognized for its unique Dynamic Capacity bandwidth-on-demand service, part of the Intelligent Network, 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, in a statement. "This capability is what customers need to become more efficient in serving their customers and in growing their businesses."
