HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 --   XO Communications today
announced that the company has joined Amazon Web Services Partner
Network (APN) and has become an APN Partner supporting AWS Direct
Connect by offering dedicated high-speed connectivity and intelligent
networking for AWS users. XO Communications' Enterprise Ethernet and
Intelligent WAN offerings help businesses connect their data center,
colocation facility or main office to AWS Direct Connect locations in
the U.S. with high-speed connectivity options of 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps. 
"Being an APN Partner supporting AWS Direct Connect opens the door to
a wide range of uses for XO intelligent networking solutions that
enable seamless access to AWS for its many customers," said Don
MacNeil, chief operating officer of XO Communications. "The XO
network enables organizations to optimize latency-sensitive traffic
by using a private circuit instead of the public Internet,
eliminating unnecessary interruptions and avoiding the costs that are
sometimes associated with these delays. In addition, our involvement
with the AWS Direct Connect program efficiently enables large data
transfers in support of business continuity and disaster recovery
plans."  
IT departments are increasingly moving applications to the cloud that
require secure network connectivity options and management tools. The
XO Intelligent WAN provides the integrated network performance,
security and application visibility that IT and network managers need
in order to meet strict availability, latency and isolation
requirements for their cloud-based applications. The XO Intelligent
WAN solution offers a comprehensive approach to meeting these demands
by combining the capabilities of MPLS IP-VPN technology,
network-based integrated security, and network performance management
tools that enable end-to-end visibility of cloud-based applications
across the XO network. 
"XO provides award-winning, competitively priced, high-performance
communications, managed network and IT infrastructure services for
business, large enterprise and wholesale customers. AWS Direct
Connect customers can expect best-in-class XO intelligent networking
solutions, as well as a continued company focus on our robust
Ethernet portfolio and footprint, hosted unified communications and
managed services," said Chris Ancell, chief executive officer of XO
Communications.
