XO Launches Wholesale Ethernet Hub

XO Communications has launched an Ethernet Hub service for domestic and international carriers seeking to expand the reach of their Ethernet services in the United States.

Unlike services that are oversubscribed, XO Ethernet Hub offers dedicated access to XO's extensive Ethernet footprint, including Ethernet over Copper, through a single connection.

XO said the Ethernet over Copper delivery option is one of the service's key advantages as it goes beyond the traditional fiber network and expands customers' reach to nearly 4 million commercial buildings nationwide.

XO's Ethernet Hub supports a variety of Ethernet bandwidth options, ranging from 5Mbps to 10Gbps. XO's Ethernet Service also supports 802.1Q, VLAN stacking and jumbo frames -- all aimed at providing carriers the most cost-effective, accessible and scalable way to reach their customers with Ethernet services.
