XO's latest announcement to expand its MPLS IP-VPN service throughout its territory through other carrier partners is another example that no one service provider can practically build their own network everywhere. These new partnerships will enable XO to provide MPLS IP-VPN services to both domestic and multi-national business customers in all 50 U.S. states and 22 countries on five continents. Having this network reach will resonate with larger enterprise accounts that desire consistency of service and connections in the markets they serve.
While it would not reveal the names of its carrier partners, XO did say that it struck agreements with two major domestic and international service providers. Through these agreements, XO "rounded out" its domestic footprint, while the other agreement enhanced its overseas network presence. This is not the first time XO has worked with international partners. Last fall, T-Systems struck a deal with XO to expand its U.S. network presence. Going forward, XO says it plans on striking other carrier partner deals to further expand its international network presence.
To date, XO says its international network reach includes: Australia, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and the United Kingdom.
