XO Communications has joined Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN) and has become an APN Partner supporting AWS Direct Connect. Deepening XO’s existinb relationship with Amazon, the move means XO can now offer its Enterprise Ethernet and Intelligent WAN offering to enterprises using AWS connect.
In turn, partners working with XO and AWS can now sell both services to their customers. XO offers 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.”
