08/31/2006 - Time Warner Telecom Expands

Time Warner Telecom (TWTC), whose Spokane branch is located in the Triangle’s Washington Mutual Building, will expand its nation-wide, fiber-based footprint. TWTC has signed an agreement to acquire Xspedius Communications, LLC, a privately held telecommunications company that provides services to businesses across the United States. Xspedius is a metro fiber-based provider of integrated communications services primarily to enterprise businesses as well as carrier customers. Xspedius provides a comprehensive suite of high quality services, including metro Ethernet, local and long distance voice, data and dedicated Internet access services, in 43 markets across 18 states and the District of Columbia. “This acquisition significantly broadens the already extensive nature of our local assets and national capabilities,” said Larissa Herda, Chairman, CEO and President of Time Warner Telecom.

Time Warner Telecom Inc., headquartered in Littleton, Colo., provides managed network services, specializing in Ethernet and transport data networking, Internet access, local and long distance voice, VoIP and security, to enterprise organizations and communications services companies throughout the U.S. Locally, TWTC continues to expand its fiber-based network in Spokane and throughout the Pacific Northwest Region. “Our Spokane, Seattle, Portland and Boise operations have continued to expand rapidly because TWTC is financially sound, which allows us to continue to make capital investments in infrastructure and fiber optic networks, to reach more enterprise customers” states Tom Newbury, TWTC Spokane General Manager.

In Spokane, TWTC has entered into a strategic alliance with IT-Lifeline to address disaster recovery and business continuity initiatives for businesses throughout the region. IT-Lifeline provides business continuation and disaster recovery services -- including workplace recovery suites complete with server, workstation, and communications systems; managed off-site data backup and recovery; remote disk replication, and IT/business continuity planning and testing services. TWTC provides the communications network to transport the company data to IT-Lifeline. With TWTC’s expanded national footprint, this service can now be provided to businesses throughout the United States.

Because business continuity and disaster recovery is critical to many businesses, both large and small, more businesses are evaluating and incorporating network carrier diversity and critical facility redundancy into their operations. “IT-Lifeline’s workplace recovery suites are a great way to replicate mission critical IT and customer support services” says Newbury. “The increased emphasis on business continuity, the convergence of voice and data networks, and the increase in ‘Mixed-Use’ buildings including both business and residential living space are posing new challenges for the telecom industry. This is an exciting time for the telecommunications industry and Time Warner Telecom is position to grow.”
