XO Communications brings WAN services to Dickstein Shapiro

XO Communications on Tuesday announced it has been tapped to provide Dickstein Shapiro LLP, a major law firm, with a set of WAN voice and data services to serve its national footprint of offices.

By working with XO, Dickstein Shapiro can consolidate all of its voice and data services onto one managed IP network that will support the firm's VoIP and core legal applications.

The service provider said it will provide the law firm its host of MPLS IP-VPN, XO Enterprise SIP Trunking and XO Applications Performance Management services.

Given the mobile nature of the legal industry, the MPLS-based IP VPN service will enable the firm's attorneys to access critical applications and documents regardless of location. With SIP Trunking, which is connected by the IP-VPN service, they will have a centralized IP-PBX architecture versus having to manage PBXs at each respective office site.

Sharon O'Meara, Dickstein Shapiro's Chief Administrative Officer and Interim Chief Information Officer, said employing XO's service package will "simplify the management of voice and data services while also reinforcing the performance and reliability of our network."

To provide greater network redundancy, the service provider is also providing dual fiber connections to each of the firm's six office locations.

Winning a large multisite business customer like Dickstein Shapiro is an important milestone for the competitive service provider as it continues to expand its optical and copper-based networks.
