By Raju Shanbhag
Recently, XO Communications (News - Alert) announced important improvements to its Ethernet services, including 100 Mbps Ethernet over copper (EoC) access speeds. On this occasion, the company also expanded its nationwide Ethernet access network to nearly two million locations.
XO's Ethernet services leadership offers simple, inexpensive methods to connect their business locations and provide applications, data and information to flow seamlessly over their local area (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN).
It also provides the performance and reliability a company needs.
Supporting even faster access to the company's portfolio of VoIP, network, security and cloud-based services, the company now provides numerous high-speed Ethernet over copper access options up to 100Mbps.
XO Communications has been a pioneer in offering business and wholesale customers with more inexpensive alternative Ethernet access options to fiber optic technology, as one of the first service providers to install EoC technology on a nationwide basis.
“Today's announcement, along with [the] launch of our nationwide 100 Gbps network last month, demonstrates XO Communications' Ethernet services leadership in terms of the broad range of bandwidth options we offer and our commitment to making Ethernet more widely available," said Don MacNeil, chief marketing officer at XO Communications. "As demand for Ethernet continues to accelerate, XO Communications is very well positioned to deliver cost effective, scalable, high-speed Ethernet access options coupled with extensive nationwide coverage.”
DBR360, a company offering private telecommunications network services, recently announced that XO Communications has now become a new member of its 360Exchange. The 360Exchange is a service that offers private connectivity between important markets which provide virtual on-net presence at all exchange locations. It does not need any capital investment or term commitments.
With the help of 360Exchange Portal, users can promote their services and rapidly connect to other members to support revenue growth.
