tw telecom turns on 10 Gbps Ethernet at Phoenix NAP

tw telecom (Nasdaq: TWTC) has found a new outlet to deliver its Ethernet services: data center provider Phoenix NAP.

Already delivering Ethernet in 75 U.S. markets, tw telecom will be able to directly extend those services to the data center provider's customers. As one of the latest service providers to establish an arrangement with Phoenix NAP, tw telecom is tapping into the ongoing industry trend to extend Ethernet service availability through a neutral source.

Ethernet providers establishing arrangements with neutral data center service providers such as Phoenix NAP and emerging Ethernet exchanges (TELX and Neutral Tandem) provide benefits for both the service provider and the end customer. For the Ethernet provider, it could mean multiple revenue sources. Likewise, end-customers have the option to work with the Ethernet service provider of their choice by going through Phoenix NAP or interfacing with tw telecom directly.
