At the 2011 Enterprise Connect (VoiceCon) event, XO Communications launched its cloud-based comprehensive communications solution for business. This new service will provide businesses with a complete Unified Communications (UC) solution that is more cost-effective in both hardware and upkeep than existing communications packages.

This hosted IP PBX solution will allow customers to have access to the latest technology in voice, video, and converged communications in a rapidly deployable manner, without having the added inconvenience of on-premise system maintenance. XO is confident that this feature-rich hosted communications platform will enable businesses to increase productivity and lower overall communications costs.

UC solutions utilizing the cloud are an emerging concept, and this IP communications-as-a-service model will be structured on a per-user basis. This service will allow businesses to administrate the various communications functions of their enterprise with greater ease and will also defray significant upfront equipment expenditures.

Utilizing IP technology to further UC strategy will also significantly lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) by reducing the operational costs associated with managing multiple locations and networks. With services such as free site-to-site calling and a web portal for managing service and quality, XO is positioned to be a one-stop solution for enterprise-level communication solutions.

This service also represents the next step in XO’s cloud-based delivery of communications, security, and IT infrastructure solutions. Utilizing its own nationwide network and a series of established partnerships with leaders in the telecom field, XO is billing itself as the answer when it comes to hosted communications solutions for business.
