TNS provides data communications and, as it expands, says it needed to consolidate its high-bandwidth applications to maintain levels of service for customers in the retail, banking, financial and telecom industries. So, it turned to XO to help it transport data traffic across multiple platforms, TNS said.
Now, TNS added, the company is well positioned toreach new customers, and streamline cost and equipment needs throughout the U.S.” Thats because, thanks to Hub, TNS doesnt have to build its own fiber networks.
TNS already was using other XO services. The Hub product is a point-to-multipoint service that uses technology including Ethernet-over-copper; XO says Hub touches almost 4 million businesses across the United States.
XO started offering its wholesale Hub product in June 2007.
