JUNE 27, 2007 -- XO Communications (search for XO Communications), provider of communications services for businesses and communications services providers, today announced the launch of XO National Hub, a new wholesale network offering that enables carriers and service providers to expand their networks and obtain bandwidth on demand by leveraging XO's nationwide optical network.
XO National Hub offers service providers a cost-effective and scalable option 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, say XO representatives. 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 offering allows customers to reserve network capacity and deploy it when it is needed, but only pay for the circuits when they are used, note XO representatives.
"XO National Hub is another demonstration of the capabilities and power of the XO network," contends 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," he claims.
XO says its new 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 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 networks that support dispersed end user data traffic; or
• Internet Service Providers that need to aggregate traffic nationwide through a single network handoff.
