NEW YORK -- Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) announced today it was named the top cable company on Vertical Systems Group’s U.S. Carrier Ethernet LEADERBOARD based on port share results for year-end 2013. TWCBC jumped to fifth overall in the research firm’s rankings, up three spots from number eight in the previous year’s survey. The Vertical Systems Group LEADERBOARD is the industry’s foremost benchmark for measuring Ethernet Service Provider market presence based on billable retail port installations.

Known for its innovation in Ethernet services, TWCBC has leveraged its dense fiber and Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) networks to remain at the forefront of the industry and provide services for some of the largest companies in the country. The company remains a leader in retail Ethernet services and has grown to be a major provider of carrier services like cell tower backhaul and wholesale access.

"Cable companies have developed a winning formula for the U.S. business Ethernet market," said Rick Malone, principal at Vertical Systems Group. "They are successfully leveraging their on-net fiber footprints to offer aggressive pricing and rapid service provisioning. As the top cable provider on our LEADERBOARD, Time Warner Cable Business Class is demonstrating great growth potential by being a leader in the industry.”

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.
