tw telecom inc. (NASDAQ: TWTC) says it now offers an Ethernet service suite that provide business Ethernet reach across the United States to thousands of enterprise customers and buildings through a single Ethernet connection scalable to 10 Gbps.

Through a single network connection in one location, the new Business Ethernet service can be delivered to virtually any building or data center in the United States across tw telecom's 75-market national footprint, the carrier asserts. The service, based on MEF-certified Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) standards, can enable carriers and cloud applications providers to reach end user locations across a secure, scalable, and trusted network, tw telecom adds. The new Business Ethernet service enables customers to avoid capital investments, reduce operating costs, and more easily manage this capability operationally, the company concludes.

"Carriers and cloud application service providers are recognizing the need for a secure and scalable network as they roll out business critical applications to their customers," said Tom Marx, president of tw telecom's Wholesale Services unit. "These infrastructure customers typically do not have their own network everywhere they need to go. They look to tw telecom to deliver secure, scalable, and trusted network solutions that tw telecom's Business Ethernet provides, as they deliver applications to their customers."
