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.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
