April 18, 2006 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) XO Communications (http://www.xo.com) has announced enhancements to its XOptions Flex voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services bundle which includes web hosting. The bundle enables medium-sized businesses to cut costs using VoIP without replacing existing phone systems. To date, more than 3,000 businesses across the USA have deployed the system.
The new XOptions Flex enhancements enable businesses to utilize XOptions Flex with existing private branch exchanges (PBX) that are connected to a Primary Rate Interface (PRI) or digital trunk. XOptions Flexs VoIP services bundle combines unlimited local and long distance calling, dedicated Internet access and web hosting for a single monthly fee. XOptions Flexs advanced capabilities include dynamic bandwidth allocation, voice virtual private networking (VPN) and an online feature management tool.
"These enhancements move XOptions Flex up-market to businesses with larger offices that are looking to cost-effectively migrate to voice over IP," suggested Charlie Cary, Vice President of Marketing at XO Communications. "With more than 3,000 customers, XOptions Flex has quickly gained traction among the small business segment, and we expect that it will gain ground among larger businesses that want to IP-enable their existing telephone systems."
