tw telecom adds alert function to its on-demand bandwidth service

tw telecom (Nasdaq: TWTC) is helping its retail enterprise customers satisfy their bandwidth needs with the introduction of an alerts-driven dynamic capacity capability for its Ethernet bandwidth-on-demand option.

Building on its growing intelligent network initiative, which includes its one-to-many national Ethernet interconnection solution and Dynamic Capacity services, the CLEC is now allowing customers to pre-set bandwidth utilization thresholds. Supporting up to 10 Gbps, a customer's Ethernet bandwidth will be doubled or tripled when the usage threshold is reached.

The CLEC said that the new Alerts Driven Dynamic Capacity service ties together the first two phases of its Intelligent Network portfolio, which increases the velocity at which enterprises buy and consume dedicated network services.   

This new feature is available to current and prospective customers of Ethernet customers that currently have access to its Enhanced Management and Dynamic Capacity capabilities in its 18,500 tw telecom fiber-connected buildings.
