Provides Wholesale Carrier Customers With Economical Last Mile Access to Businesses Throughout WOW! Markets

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2015) - WOW! Wholesale, a division of WOW! Business, today announced the availability of its Ethernet over Hybrid Fiber Coax (EoHFC) service within its network coverage area. WOW! Wholesale carrier customers benefit from WOW!'s extensive and privately owned infrastructure to deliver economical bandwidth to multi-site businesses, branch and remote offices and small- and medium-size businesses within a metro area. With 24x7x365 NOC and service support backed by the WOW! Wholesale consultative approach, customers are assured the optimum solution and service levels for their needs.

"By leveraging our extensive access facilities, WOW! Wholesale is offering carriers the ability to deliver a true end-to-end solution for their business customers in our service areas," said Steve Poteat, Product Development Director for WOW! "End-to-end provisioning becomes increasingly important for carriers as multi-site businesses require multiple locations to operate as a unified entity."

The WOW! Business EoHFC service offers symmetrical speeds of 3, 5 and 10 Mbps (best effort and prioritized options), supports Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) topologies such as Ethernet Line (ELINE) and Ethernet LAN (ELAN), and provides interoperability with fiber-based Ethernet access. WOW!'s extensive on-net HFC footprint allows the provision of symmetrical Ethernet services to wholesale clients over a wide area, and the use of External Network to Network Interface (ENNI) connections can extend these services over additional distances, depending on the individual network conditions.
