CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- November 16, 2012

Time Warner Cable (TWC) has officially opened National Data Center East on its
Charlotte campus, just one of two centers of its kind nationwide for the
company. Announced last summer as part of a $101 million expansion project in
Charlotte, the Data Center supports the equipment necessary to deliver service
for Time Warner Cable’s core residential and business products.

“The latest IP technology housed in this building gives Time Warner Cable the
capability and flexibility to focus on delivering services in line with our
vision of bringing our customers the 4 Any’s – any content to any device,
anywhere at any time,” says Carol Hevey, executive vice president of
operations, Time Warner Cable East. "Locating one of just two national data
centers in Charlotte emphasizes TWC’s commitment to the Charlotte area and a
commitment to provide the latest and best technology to our customers."

A few key functions of the building include hosting the applications that
support approximately 70 million residential emails sent per day, managing the
billing records of more than 15 million customers and providing all backend
applications delivered to the entire Time Warner Cable employee base.

The building also includes Cloud Technology from NaviSite, a Time Warner Cable
company. NaviSite’s NaviCloud Platform has been designed to address the
critical IT issues confronting SMB and Enterprise organizations. The primary
goal of the virtual cloud environment is to simplify the complexities of IT
for small businesses.

“Time Warner Cable serves customers across 29 states and this National Data
Center provides the management and support for all Time Warner Cable products
and services including WiFi, High Speed Data, Voice, TV services on smart
devices and Intelligent Home among others,” added Jim Ludington, executive
vice president of national network operations and engineering, Time Warner
Cable. “In addition, the building is strategically designed to double in
equipment size to accommodate future growth.”

The $82 million dollar National Data Center is a 178,000 square foot facility
that includes 1,600 racks of technical equipment and four 12,000 square foot
data halls. The second facility is a four-story, 103,500 square foot
administrative office building. In support of TWC’s green initiative, both
buildings will seek Silver LEED certification.

As part of the construction announcement made last summer, Time Warner Cable
also announced the addition of 225 new jobs. All of those positions have been
filled. With the addition of these jobs, Charlotte is now home to the
company’s largest corporate campus.
