XO Communications Inc. (Booths 212-214) has launched XOptions Flex, its bundled VoIP service for business customers. The product will be sold through channel partners. XO said its XOptions Flex would be available in Boston, New York and Washington, D.C., in early March, and then available nationwide in the second quarter.
“XOptions Flex takes our bundled services offering to the next level by leveraging IP technology to provide our customers with more advanced features and capabilities,” says Craig Collins, vice president of product management at XO. “While traditional services assign fixed capacity for voice and data traffic, XOptions Flex will allow the full use of the IP circuit to support data traffic when voice lines are idle. When there are voice calls, voice traffic will always have priority. In this way, businesses get maximum utilization and value from their integrated access circuit while ensuring the highest quality of service for voice calls.”
XOptions Flex will be available for a flat monthly price. The service includes more than a dozen standard voice applications and features such as call forward, three-way calling and hung groups for each phone line. Other features are:
Dedicated Internet access up to 3mbps
Dynamic bandwidth allocation
Unlimited local calling
Unlimited inbound and outbound domestic long-distance calling
Web portal so users can change features
Web Basic Hosting Package
XO says users can add voice lines, hosting and other applications on an a la carte basis. The CLEC provisions its VoIP services over its own Tier 1 IP network.
