NEW YORK -- Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) today announced it is the first North American company to receive all six retail Carrier Ethernet (CE) 2.0 certifications granted by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF). The MEF CE 2.0 certifications were received for E-Line (EPL/EVPL), E-LAN (EP-LAN/EVP-LAN) and E-Tree (EP-Tree/EVP-Tree) service configurations. The company also boasts a total of 57 MEF-certified employees, 24 of whom are CE 2.0 certified.

A recognized industry leader, TWCBC has been at the forefront of Ethernet services innovation, becoming the first Multiple System Operator (MSO) in the world to receive MEF 14 certification (part of MEF CE 1.0) in 2008. The company was a leading innovator in delivering Ethernet services over DOCSIS, which lead to an additional MEF recognition as the North American Carrier Ethernet Service Provider of the Year for Service Innovation, also in 2008.

TWCBC Ethernet services, available in over 58,000 fiber-lit buildings and 800,000 DOCSIS-equipped buildings, provide a reliable, scalable, high bandwidth network solution to interconnect business locations within and across metro markets, with speeds ranging from under 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps (speeds available in most areas). The service is delivered over a fiber-rich network backed by industry leading Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

Is 2014 the year?
It looks like this very well could be the year the CE 2.0 breaks through, if TWC's announcement and a couple recent vendor announcements are any indication.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
