February 4, 2003-- Time Warner Telecom, a Littleton, CO-based provider of metro and regional optical broadband networks and services to business customers, announced that its Native LAN metro Ethernet service is bringing high-speed data connectivity to large- and medium-sized-business customers in 14 markets, with plans for future expansion.

To deliver its Native LAN service, Time Warner Telecom uses components from Cisco Systems complete optical multiservice edge and transport (COMET) portfolio including the ONS 15454 and ONS 15327 multiservice provisioning platforms (MSPPs). In this solution, the ONS 15454 and ONS 15327 provide multiservice capabilities along with line-rate Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, delivering fast LAN-to-LAN data connections and enabling increased productivity for customers. Combining data traffic with existing voice and time-division multiplexed traffic ensures that wavelengths are efficiently packed and bandwidth is most effectively utilized. Gigabit Ethernet delivers low cost per bit for data transport, carrier-class reliability, and scalability for high-bandwidth services.

With its Cisco ONS 15454 and ONS 15327 MSPP-based infrastructure, Time Warner Telecom has achieved the Cisco Powered Network designation. As a member of this program, Time Warner Telecom will participate in joint marketing and sales activities with Cisco. This agreement allows Time Warner Telecom's account executives to use Cisco Systems sales and consultative marketing expertise to reach additional customers and pursue new business opportunities in current markets.
