T-Systems expands in U.S. with XO

T-Systems, the corporate enterprise-focused unit of Germany's Deutsche Telekom that once seemed to be destined to be sold by DT, is expanding services into six major U.S. metropolitan markets. T-Systems has chosen XO Communications as its network partner for the expansion, which is targeting Atlanta, Boston, Columbus, Denver, Houston and Seattle.

It's the latest step for a company with a multi-protocol label switching-based network that already reaches into 50 countries. The DT unit reportedly was restructured just last year, after rumored efforts to sell it did not culminate in a deal. T-Systems also becomes the latest international firm looking to make a bigger splash in the U.S. market, joining carriers such as BT, Orange Business Services and Reliance Globalcom.
