XO Communications expects to more than double the capacity of its nationwide IP/MPLS network with the deployment of Cisco’s CRS-1 Carrier Routing System in its network core.

XO’s network is based on Cisco’s IP Next Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture, so relying on Cisco equipment for a capacity expansion was to be expected. The move is preparatory to another doubling, for a four-fold increase in capacity. The deployment will also pave the way for an eventual upgrade to a multi-terabit capable router complex.

XO will deploy the CRS-1 – including high-speed Dedicated Internet access, IP Transit, IP-VPN and VoIP services – for XO’s customer base of businesses, large enterprises and service providers.

The XO IP/MPLS network is designed to offer customers – including cable companies, content providers, enterprises, international telecommunications companies and other service providers – robust and scalable network solutions at high-bandwidth levels to help them manage their growing Internet traffic at speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
