XO Communications has launched 40gbps network services in all major metropolitan markets the company serves across the United States. The new capabilities are designed to meet growing demand for ultra high-bandwidth and low latency network connectivity by enterprise and wholesale customers.
The upgrade comes as large enterprises and service providers are increasingly looking for more cost-effective, higher-speed network connectivity options to manage larger volumes of network traffic and achieve ultra-low latency for applications running across their networks. Companies such as large financial institutions and financial trading firms require network connectivity at the fastest speeds in order to receive market data, analyze the data and then place an order in a matter of milliseconds. For wireless service providers, they will continue to need higher-bandwidth connections in order to cost-effectively manage the significant growth of mobile network traffic resulting from 3G and new 4G wireless data applications.

“We are continually investing in our network to offer customers the highest levels of capacity, speed and performance they require today and be prepared for their network needs of tomorrow,” said Randy Nicklas, CTO at XO. “These new high-speed, low latency network offerings enable customers with mission-critical applications to achieve their strategic business objectives to increase revenue in the most cost-effective manner possible.”
