HERNDON, Va. -- XO Communications, a leading provider of 21st century communications for businesses and communications service providers, today announced that it will significantly expand the capacity of its nationwide IP/MPLS network based on the Cisco IP Next Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture to meet the growing demand for high-speed Internet access services and support its expansion into the high-capacity IP Transit services market. The expansion will more than double current capacity and sets the stage for a four-fold increase, while providing the ability to scale to a multi-terabit capable router complex.

XO Communications will deploy the Cisco® CRS-1 Carrier Routing System in the core of its nationwide IP/MPLS network to support a broad range of services, including high-speed Dedicated Internet access, IP Transit, IP-VPN and VoIP services for businesses, large enterprises and service providers. In addition to delivering increased capacity, the CRS-1 platform will also deliver greater performance and reliability, reduce operational expenditures and provide a more cost-effective platform to deliver high-capacity IP network services.

“Our goal is to deliver the most advanced network infrastructure that enables XO to maintain and strengthen our leadership in providing innovative IP services for our enterprise and service provider customers,” said Randy Nicklas, chief technology officer at XO Communications. “By investing in our IP network with the latest technology, we can respond quickly to the increased demand we are seeing for more bandwidth and continue to pursue new opportunities that will drive revenue with an improved cost basis.”
