Tw Telecom Connects ELynk(sm) Express To AWS Direct Connect

LITTLETON, Colo., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- tw telecom inc. , (NASDAQ: TWTC) a leading provider of Business Ethernet and networking solutions, announced the launch of its innovative eLynk(sm) Express service for AWS Direct Connect 1G, 10G and Hosted Connections.  tw telecom's eLynk(sm) Express, combined with its Intelligent Network capabilities, streamlines the activation process and allows dynamic network connectivity that can automatically flex as bandwidth requirements change into the AWS cloud.  tw telecom is revolutionizing the way network connectivity supports the AWS cloud by making it easy to use and elastic.


Customers have more connectivity speeds to choose from with the introduction of Hosted Connection for AWS Direct Connect, which allows many AWS customers to securely connect to their clouds across a single physical port, hosted by tw telecom.   tw telecom takes this one step further by offering customers connection speed options starting as little as 2 Megs, into the AWS Cloud.  tw telecom also manages connectivity options with eLynk Express and builds the interconnection for the enterprise edge to their Amazon EC2 instances on the customer's behalf. 

tw telecom's Intelligent Network capabilities allow customers the flexibility to adjust to the requirements of their AWS environment.  tw telecom's  Dynamic Capacity® flexes bandwidth up or down through user controls or thresholds set by the customer.  So the network senses when congestion is present and adjusts to that event.     

Alerts Driven Dynamic Capacity® -- the industry's first automatic dedicated Ethernet bandwidth-on-demand service -- and other Intelligent Network capabilities offer customers granular visibility, flexibility and control of their network metrics to optimize business performance.  Enterprises now have the capability to pre-set bandwidth utilization thresholds, without human intervention, that automatically doubles or triples network Business Ethernet bandwidth when reached.  tw telecom is one of the top three leading providers of Business Ethernet throughout the  U.S., according to leading industry analysts Vertical Systems Group and Frost & Sullivan. 

"Customers with eLynk Express have a more efficient way to access the AWS Cloud," said Graham Taylor, Senior Vice President – Marketing at tw telecom.  "CIOs tell us many of their applications require a higher level of dedicated connectivity than what the Internet can provide.  As they continue to rapidly adopt the cloud, our integration of the AWS network with our unique Intelligent Network capabilities, delivers the resilient, secure, scalable, and predictable network connections they need.   The result is that tw telecom seamlessly manages the connection for the customer so they can focus on improving their business performance."

tw telecom's Intelligent Network portfolio lets customers automatically control the speed at which they buy and consume dedicated network services, and is an integral part of its future Constellation Platform(sm) vision.   tw telecom has taken a unique approach in developing and delivering its Intelligent Network portfolio by incorporating customer feedback into its evolving IT strategies at the foundation of the solution. The Company's Intelligent Network services suite is highly scalable and widely available to meet the needs of Business Ethernet customers because it is built on the company's comprehensive data services platform and its integrated systems architecture. 

tw telecom's customer commitment to innovation and delivering reliable network solutions, its resilient national fiber network, and an extensive product portfolio enable tw telecom to deliver consistent, secure, scalable and predictable network connections to enterprises throughout the U.S.
