XO Communications says it is delivering a new service that provides the network performance, security and visibility IT and network managers need in order to stay ahead of daily challenges and enhance their ability to provide a superior technology experience to end-users.
The XO Intelligent WAN solution offers what the company calls a comprehensive and integrated approach to meeting the demands placed on networks combining intelligent networking, integrated security, and end-to-end visibility of the performance of applications across the network.
A recent Forrester survey found that 86 percent of businesses have not been able to provision new services or support business demands because the network wasn't up to the task. As demands on networks to support multiple services and technologies such as big data, cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, and social networking have increased, traditional network designs have not been able to keep pace with the performance, security and scalability requirements necessary to deliver a superior experience for end-users.
XO says Intelligent WAN helps IT and network managers stay ahead of these challenges with a unified approach to total network management that provides the performance, security and visibility they require through three key capabilities: intelligent networking; integrated network security and end-to-end visibility of application performance.
“Increasingly, the executive suite is seeing the network as creating business value and being central to achieving business objectives," said Don MacNeil, chief marketing officer, XO Communications. "The XO Intelligent WAN can help IT and network staff plan better for tomorrow’s business environment by providing greater agility for exploiting market opportunities, delivering on customer-centric principles, and conquering the two biggest barriers to cloud services adoption: security and application performance."
