RESTON, Va. -- XO Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:XOXO), one of the world's fastest-growing providers of broadband communications solutions, today announced that it has introduced OC-12 (622 Mbps), OC-48 (2.5 Gbps) and OC-192 (10 Gbps) capacity metro wavelength services in each of its 62 U.S. markets. The XO Metro Wavelength Service (MWS) is a protected service that provides carrier and enterprise customers with high bandwidth and protocol transparent flexibility at a low cost per megabit. By offering a protected service, XO can manage and maintain its customers' services and provision additional metro wavelengths, all without service interruption. Made possible by XO's deployment of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) equipment in its metro fiber networks, XO MWS provides each customer with a wavelength of light on a fiber optic strand, which is used exclusively for that customer's service and can operate at different bit rates and support different transport protocols (e.g., SONET, ATM, IP, etc.). "Our extensive metro fiber networks enable us to offer customers expanded metro area network capacity that can now be provisioned for the customer in weeks rather than months," said Nancy Gofus, XO Executive Vice President of Marketing and Customer Care. "XO MWS provides high-end networking capabilities to enterprise and carrier customers at a relatively low fixed monthly cost that essentially eliminates distance-sensitive concerns of other networking alternatives."XO Communications Inc.
