- Dedicated Long-Haul Route to Los Angeles and Upgrades to Denver Metro Network are Latest Service Additions in Quickly Growing Relationship
HERNDON, VA – March 08, 2010 – XO Communications today announced that it has been selected by Vitelity, one of the nation’s largest VoIP network providers with more than 10,000 wholesale customers in 50 states, to provide dedicated long-haul network connectivity between Denver and Los Angeles. The 10 Gbps backbone will be the Denver-based company’s first long-haul route to Los Angeles. Vitelity also is upgrading its Denver metro network service with XO, moving to a 10 Gbps backbone. By expanding and upgrading its network services with XO, the company is well positioned to offer customers high-speed, high-capacity VoIP services at a competitive price, as well as continue to grow its network footprint.
The dedicated long-haul route between Denver and Los Angeles will allow Vitelity to connect its local-area network to its data center in Denver, providing Los Angeles customers with faster and more reliable service. Once completed, Vitelity will cover nearly half the country with 10 Gbps network connectivity provided by XO.
“Vitelity’s partnership with XO enables us to solidify our presence in the Los Angeles market, as well as offer more competitive services and attract more multi-location enterprise customers,” said Chris Hall, chief operating officer of Vitelity. “The decision to expand and upgrade our network with XO was easy, as our established history with the company has proven to us its commitment to high-level service.”
Vitelity’s upgrade to a faster network connection in Denver was prompted by the area’s growing demand for telecom services. In fact, according to Vitelity, area demand for VoIP and IP services has increased by nearly 800 percent in the past 3 years. By upgrading both its IP port and Metro point-to-point Ethernet service from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps, the company is better equipped to serve customers with high-bandwidth applications.
XO was awarded the network upgrade and expansion business through a competitive bidding process. Vitelity attributes the wins to XO’s unparalleled customer service and industry-leading technology.
“Giving our customers access to the most advanced, high-capacity network services available is the reason we continue to invest in our IP / Ethernet and long-haul infrastructure,” said Don MacNeil, vice president of XO Carrier Services Operations. “Vitelity’s continued relationship with XO speaks to the fact that we’re dedicated to expanding the capabilities of our network so that we can quickly respond to customer demands with top-of-the-line products and services.”
