Tw Telecom To Demonstrate A Prototype Of Its Constellation Platform(sm) At Cloud Expo 2013

LITTLETON, Colo., June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  tw telecom inc. (NASDAQ: TWTC), a leading provider of managed services, including Business Ethernet, converged and IP VPN solutions for enterprises throughout the U.S. and world-wide, today announced it will be partnering with leading data center provider CoreSite to demonstrate a prototype version of its Constellation Platform sm at the upcoming Cloud Expo 2013 in New York City.  tw telecom's Constellation Platform sm is being developed to enable enterprise customers to "click and connect," building new network service connections on demand to data centers and cloud applications providers across the country.

"Imagine having a dedicated, secure, predictable and scalable Ethernet network for your enterprise's cloud needs.  Then imagine having that network available at the click of a button, building the service connection in real time, on-demand," said John Blount, Chief Operating Officer, tw telecom.  "No more writing service orders, waiting 45 or 120 days or longer for a dedicated network connection.  Our future Constellation Platform sm will enable enterprise customers to establish new Business Ethernet service connections, with as much bandwidth as they need, to any data center or cloud provider we are connected to, in real time."

"Relationships with companies like tw telecom help CoreSite bring its ecosystem of solutions to our joint customers and address the pain points associated with cloud connectivity," said Jarrett Appleby, COO of CoreSite.  "We believe that combining the CoreSite community and our Open Cloud Exchange with tw telecom's Constellation Platform sm will bring together key ingredients for cloud connectivity for our combined customers."

One of tw telecom's Constellation Platform sm demonstrations will highlight high performance, dedicated Ethernet access to a virtual private cloud database business application as part of today's comprehensive IT operating environment in a remote third party data center.  The demonstration will create a new network connection to extend through the data center and into the database application service provider on-demand, in real time.  This automated network provisioning is made possible through ongoing joint API development and integration between the two companies.  The use case highlights the opportunity for enterprises to leverage dedicated network access into virtual private cloud infrastructure to drive cost out of their business while delivering significant business value in managing real time big data analytics strategies.

tw telecom's Constellation Platform sm will operate over the company's award winning Business Ethernet service platform to provide enterprise customers the ability to connect on-demand, nationally to network resources – such as data centers and cloud application providers – creating new service connections with as much bandwidth as is needed, for as long as is needed, allowing customers to only pay for what they use.

"Delivering a secure, scalable and predictable network experience for the enterprise to access the cloud is becoming table stakes in our customer's plans.  Delivering those connections for our customers, on-demand, in real time, where they need them, for as long as they need them is a game changer.  That's the vision of our Constellation Platform sm," said Blount.
