January 15, 2015 | New York, NY

Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) today announced enhancements to the company’s Carrier Services Ethernet solutions, delivering even greater reach and connectivity for service providers.


The enhancements include the following updates to Carrier E-Access and E-Transport offerings, subject to availability:

  • DOCSIS support for E-Access: Extensive coverage across the entire TWCBC network footprint with access to nearly one million serviceable buildings. Ability to use an existing TWCBC External Network-to-Network Interface (ENNI) port to connect with Ethernet over DOCSIS with options from 2, 5 and 10 Mbps.
  • Scalable bandwidth: Additional bandwidth tiers for E-Access and E-Transport from 5 Mbps up to 10 Gbps.
  • Cross-market connectivity: Connect across the U.S. between different TWCBC markets with a single point of presence.
  • Multiplexed User Network Interface (UNI) ports: Multiple Operator Virtual Connections (OVCs) allow for the flexibility to match your end customer’s business needs.


“These enhancements build upon our existing Carrier Ethernet portfolio by providing even more reach, connectivity, bandwidth and other options to meet the needs of service providers looking to seamlessly extend their U.S. network,” said Thane Storck, group vice president, carrier services, TWCBC.


Today, TWCBC has a 150,000-fiber-route-mile network infrastructure that currently serves 31 major metro markets nationwide with more than 80,000 fiber-lit buildings, 835,000 DOCSIS-equipped buildings and connectivity into 64 data centers across the nation. This network is complemented with last mile access from over 25 alternate access service providers through 130 ENNI locations already in place.


In 2014, TWCBC received CE 2.0 certification from the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) for all eight service configurations. In addition, the company enhanced SLAs to now include latency, jitter and packet loss to improve customer satisfaction and service.
