XO Communications Launches Point to Multi-Point Network on Demand Service for Carriers and Service Providers
New XO National Hub Solution Offers Customers Cost-Efficient Platform to Expand Network Capacity and Reach On Demand
RESTON, Va., June 27 /-- XO Communications, a leading provider of 21st century communications services for businesses and communications services providers, today announced the launch of XO National Hub, a new wholesale network solution that enables carriers and service providers to cost-effectively expand their networks and obtain bandwidth on demand leveraging XO's advanced, nationwide optical network.
XO National Hub offers service providers a cost-effective and scalable solution to extend their networks into new markets where they do not have established network facilities or obtain additional network capacity in support of increased customer demands. Through a single connection to XO's nationwide network, customers can obtain network connections and capacity on demand to establish hubs on a local, regional and national basis in carrier hotels, ILEC central offices and other end user locations across the United States. The flexibility of the XO solution allows customers to reserve network capacity and deploy it when it is needed, but only pay for the circuits when they are used.
"XO National Hub is another demonstration of the capabilities and power of the XO network," said Ernie Ortega, president of XO Carrier Services. "With the explosive demand for bandwidth, service providers need a cost-effective means to quickly expand their network capacity and reach. Our ability to provision networks on demand with this new offering will be a key differentiator for XO and our customers."
XO National Hub gives customers all the advantages of operating a facilities-based network without the cost and time associated with building their own networks in new markets. Customers benefit from rapid circuit provisioning for a broad range of speeds and end-link combinations and the ability to "engineer" their transport infrastructure to optimize cost, latency and performance. The XO service can be used to support multiple types of customer networks, including:
-- International carriers that need to extend their network coverage within the United States;
-- Mobile wireless companies that need the ability to rapidly expand network capacity;
-- Telecommunications carriers' that require primary or redundant network solutions supporting dispersed end user data traffic; or
-- Internet Service Providers that need to aggregate traffic nationwide through a single network handoff.
