XO® Enterprise SIP
XO Communications is an industry leader in SIP trunking solutions for distributed enterprises. Its newest solution, XO Enterprise SIP, enables customers to utilize a centralized IP-PBX architecture in key locations to deliver VoIP services to branch locations across an existing wide area network (WAN) or using the XO® MPLS IP-VPN solution. Moreover, utilizing XO Enterprise SIP customers can achieve a number of benefits including:

  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership by using a single or fewer IP-PBXs to support all locations;
  • Reduced Operating Costs by not having to maintain costly PRI facilities or local voice trunks at each location, and eliminating the operating expense of managing separate voice and data networks;

  • Increased Efficiency in network management through simplified and converged network operations, significantly less effort to connect new locations to the public switched telephone network;
