MCI and Time Warner Cable Partner to Deliver Next Generation, IP-Enabled Communications
ASHBURN, Va., December 08, 2003 - MCI (WCOEQ, MCWEQ) today announced that it has entered into a multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement with Time Warner Cable to provide consumers with next-generation voice-over-IP (VoIP) communications services utilizing MCI's global voice and data network.
As a result of the services provided by MCI under the terms of the agreement, Time Warner Cable will be able to deploy its residential Internet protocol ("IP") voice service, Digital Phone, nationwide. In addition to providing local points of interconnection to terminate IP voice traffic to the public switched telephone network, MCI will also deliver enhanced 9-1-1 service, local number portability as well as manage network integration and electronic bonding of both companies' order entry systems.
