MiCTA Names Time Warner Cable Business Class National Vendor For Fiber Services
Saginaw, MI (August 26, 2015)– Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) today announced the company has been selected as an approved national vendor for MiCTA, an association representing non-profit groups, including schools, healthcare, government and other organizations.
The approved vendor status allows MiCTA members to take advantage of fiber-delivered Ethernet services and Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) offered by TWCBC, at a pre-negotiated rate. This also eliminates the need for members to conduct their own competitive bidding for services, which makes procurement streamlined, easier and more time-efficient.
“MiCTA members rely on our ability to negotiate affordable rates with quality service providers,” said MiCTA Chief Operating Officer Tim von Hoff. “Time Warner Cable Business Class is a valued addition to our program because the company delivers reliable, advanced solutions in many communities across the country.”
TWCBC’s Ethernet services allow businesses and non-profits to link multiple locations. These services are certified by the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) and offer a secure, reliable, and customizable network infrastructure. The TWCBC DIA service is ideal for organizations that need large bandwidth to the Internet over a SLA-backed (service level agreement), fiber-rich network that can deliver consistent speeds from 5 Mbps up to 10 Gbps.
“As school administrators and faculty strive to improve the educational landscape, the need for technology and connectivity continues to grow. However, many communities face a widening divide between the funding needed to deliver advanced solutions and access to reliable networks to enable those solutions,” said Matthew Foosaner, Director, Government and Education Solutions, TWCBC. “By working with MiCTA, Time Warner Cable Business Class will help close the gap by offerings network solutions that are cost-effective and widely available to enable boundless, media-rich learning and collaboration environments.”
MiCTA represents thousands of higher education, K-12, healthcare library, governmental and charitable entities. Nationally, MiCTA seeks to resolve common voice, video and data issues, provide helpful information, participate in legislative and regulatory telecom advocacy, and negotiate discounted purchase contracts for telecommunications and technology services for its members.
