LITTLETON, Colo. -- tw telecom (NASDAQ: TWTC), a leading provider of Business Ethernet and networking solutions, today announced an industry first capability that gives users the ability to control network class of service implementations on demand, in real time, dynamically across its IP VPN and managed services. These industry first capabilities allow customers to prioritize their applications according to rapidly changing business needs and immediately adjust network class of service priorities to meet those applications requirements.

The company's Dynamic Prioritization capability is a new feature of its Intelligent Network that frees users from outdated, static industry processes that force companies to pre-determine their application priorities and write service orders, waiting days or weeks before required changes are implemented.

With Dynamic Prioritization, tw telecom provides its customers comprehensive Intelligent Network capabilities to enhance and expand their network prioritization with real-time control in support of IT applications across a secure and scalable network, with no downtime. Customers can manage the assignment of bandwidth by class of service (CoS) and optimize their business applications in any situation, at any time.

"Increased and ever-changing business demands have created a need for enterprises to prioritize their most valued applications dynamically over time which is inconsistent with today's slow service order process that until now has been required to make changes to the class of service implementations on their networks," said tw telecom Vice President of Portfolio Management Adam Saenger. "It's time for a game changer that not only provides customers with flexible "class of service" capability to dynamically prioritize its applications, but gives them the ability to do so on-demand, anywhere and at any time without the need for service provider interaction."

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.
