XO Enterprise SIP
XO Enterprise SIP is a powerful SIP trunking solution that gives multi-location businesses the flexibility and scalability to transform their distributed voice services architecture into a more centralized and cost-effective SIP-based VoIP network. This multiple award-winning solution 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. By utilizing XO Enterprise SIP, businesses 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;
  • Greater Flexibility by allowing locations to burst above their normal call capacity and sharing idle voice trunk capacity from other locations across the enterprise;
  • Increased Efficiency in network management through simplified and converged network operations, significantly less effort to connect new locations to the public switched telephone network;
  • Business Continuity with redundant SIP connections and the ability to automatically re-route calls to alternate locations
  • Extensive Nationwide Availability of XO VoIP services in all 50 states and more than 2,700 cities.
