40 Gbps Network Services

XO Communications Launches 40 Gbps Network Services Nationwide

On Monday, March 29, XO announced the availability of 40 Gbps network services in all major metropolitan markets it serves across the United States. The new capabilities are designed to meet growing demand for ultra high-bandwidth and low latency network connectivity by enterprise and wholesale customers.

The new capabilities include:

  • 40 Gbps Wavelength services: Allow customers to use a single 40 Gbps link for ultra high-bandwidth network connections between two locations and provides operational benefits of managing one link instead of purchasing multiple 10 Gbps links.
  • 40 Gbps IP Transit services: Allow customers to aggregate large volumes of Internet traffic over a single connection and not have to manage multiple dedicated Internet access circuits.
