XO's Coast-to-Coast 100G Links Equinix Data Centers

XO Communications is deploying nodes of its new, national 100G optical backbone in Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers across the United States.

XO Communications and its partners, Nokia Siemens Networks and Ciena, deployed the 100G service inside Equinix, leveraging Equinix’s Solution Validation Center.

The 100G connection already links Equinix data centers in Silicon Valley and Washington DC.

XO said 100G availability from Equinix’s data centers provides customers with:

  • High-capacity access to public, hybrid, private cloud providers
  • The ability to optimize their network for increased performance and lower latency
  • High-speed content distribution to improve end user experience
  • Access to Carrier Business Ethernet services across metros and regions
