XO Communications launches wide area networking service

XO Communications has announced the launch of XO Carrier MPLS IP-VPN, a wide area networking service engineered to meet the needs of current and future carrier customers.

By CBR Staff Writer

In addition to offering the standard IP-VPN services such as Class of Service (CoS) traffic routing, the carrier-specific product is expected to provide customers with: multiple VPN support across the same interface (up to 10Gbps); the ability to create global private networks through an inbound network-to-network interface with US termination; access to XO’s web portal for service level monitoring and review of usage reports 24/7; and a management VPN feature that enables carrier customers to provide their end-users with value-added services.

The company claims that XO Carrier MPLS IP-VPN can help international service providers expand their footprint; systems integrators better manage networks for end-users; and content providers securely route content between multiple locations. Moreover, the product offers carriers multiple access options, including Ethernet over copper, and is supported by dedicated carrier provisioning and care groups.

Don MacNeil, vice president of XO carrier services operations, said: Rather than simply repackaging our MPLS IP-VPN business solution for wholesale, we’ve added strategic options that allow carriers to use proven, cost-effective solutions for network growth, management and security.
