Executive Vice President, National Network Operations and Engineering, Advanced Technology Group
Jim Ludington is Executive Vice President of National Network Operations and Engineering, Advanced Technology Group, at Time Warner Cable since 2003. In this role, he is responsible for the testing, implementation and national operations of the technology platforms for delivering voice, video and data services to all customers.
Since 2003, virtually all customer-facing technology has been deployed through Mr. Ludington’s organization, including video on demand, digital phone, MDN/ODN, switched digital video, commercial voice, cell tower backhaul and the build-out of the national fiber backbone. Additionally, he is responsible for the ongoing deployment of feature enhancements and the sustaining engineering process. Three of these initiatives have earned Emmy awards for Time Warner Cable.
Mr. Ludington joined Time Warner Cable in 1982 in the Construction Division and was part of some of the early hybrid fiber-coaxial work that earned the company its first Emmy award. He served as Project Director for the Quantum project in New York in 1990, and later served as Vice President of Technology for the full service network in Orlando, Fla.
Mr. Ludington left Time Warner Cable in 1996 to start two businesses. He founded Internetwork Integration, Inc., a network services and systems integration company for the cable industry that provided voice, video and data installation and network construction services. Subsequently, he established Tradewinds Television, LLC, a cable company that built and operated video and high speed data service in multiple dwelling units, before returning to Time Warner Cable in 2003.
Time Warner Cable is among the largest providers of video, high-speed data and voice services in the U.S., connecting more than 15 million customers to entertainment, information and each other.
