LITTLETON, Colo., June 10, 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

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.
