EVP, Architecture, Development & Engineering, Time Warner Cable
Behind every great network sits a great backbone. Hayashi oversees the ongoing development of TWC’s architecture, development and engineering organization—work that helped the company earn two technology and engineering Emmys this year. This year his work led to the deployment of a navigation system featuring a cloud-based VOD portal, delivery of video to Android platforms, and the launch of WiFi access outside the home. He’s particularly excited about deploying cloud-based navigation across the TWC footprint, while further evolving the access of the network via deeper DOCIS and wireless deployment. “Done the right way,” diversity gives companies “a competitive advantage in today’s highly competitive marketplace,” he says.
