The service provides greater efficiencies by eliminating the need for businesses to maintain multiple access facilities for voice and data services and eliminating the need for bandwidth-consuming protocol conversions.
XO SIP includes a broad range of bandwidth options to maintain optimal network performance and has the following features:
