XO Communications has selected Juniper Networks M-series Internet routers for use in its new nationwide OC-192 (10-Gbits/sec) backbone inter-city network.

A combination of Juniper Networks M160 Internet backbone routers and M40 Internet access routers will deliver network throughput speed and routing intelligence to XO Communications' core network and to each of its individual markets. This network infrastructure will provide inter-city Internet and integrated voice and data services to business customers across 63 U.S. XO markets.

Juniper Networks M-series Internet routers will enable XO Communications to migrate traffic from its legacy network to a new single IP infrastructure, eliminating the need for numerous and separate voice, IP, and leased-line networks, say company representatives. The new XO network will feature OC-192 speeds.

Juniper Networks M160 Internet backbone routers have been deployed in XO's IP backbone 'core-node' points of presence in the following eight cities: New York, Washington, D.C., Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and San Jose.

XO is also deploying Juniper Networks M40 Internet access routers to direct and manage network traffic generated from XO metro fiber rings, supporting 63 U.S. cities, into the eight core network nodes for further distribution. All of the XO metro markets are expected be connected via dual OC-12 capacity circuits.

XO Communications Inc. provides broadband communications services, including local and long distance voice, Internet access, Virtual Private Networking, Ethernet, wavelength, hosting, and integrated voice and data services.

Juniper Networks Inc. provides IP infrastructure solutions for service providers. For more information, please visit the Web site at http://www.juniper.net.
