HERNDON, Va. -- XO Communications today announced its expansion in the Canadian market where, through its Canadian subsidiary, it can now offer route-diverse, high-speed network services across all of Canada’s six time zones. XO network services are now available throughout Canada, including Dedicated Internet Access, high-speed IP transit, MPLS IP-VPN, VPLS, Ethernet, Private Line and Wavelength services for enterprise and wholesale customers.

“Our Canadian expansion is an example of the progressive organic growth we’ve experienced since implementing our initial network hub in Toronto and the growing demand from our customers for end-to-end network service capabilities throughout Canada," said Don MacNeil, chief marketing officer for XO Communications. "Our further expansion across Canada will enable XO Communications to continue to provide high-capacity network services to enterprise and wholesale customers, whether they need connectivity within Canada or high-speed access to markets in the U.S."

The expansion across Canada continues the XO goal of selectively expanding its international network infrastructure to support the growing demands of its enterprise and wholesale customers. Previously, XO Communications announced the launch of services in Toronto, a key business center for the finance, high-tech, media and telecommunications industries. This expansion into Canada is designed to maximize coverage and network performance for customers by utilizing redundant metro fiber rings and multiple, diverse long-haul fiber routes that span the country, terminating in the XO hub in Toronto. The network is designed with redundant connections into the XO U.S. network via New York City, Cleveland and Seattle.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
