Xtel Communications is now offering full Ethernet services to its customers.
According to Brian Flynn, vice president of Xtel Communications of Marlton, N.J., Ethernet services are viable and necessary option for businesses that need performance, reliability and scalability from their Internet connection.
Xtel leverages its dense network footprint to provide Ethernet over Copper (Eoc), Ethernet over Sonet (EoS), and Metro Ethernet services in the Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C., markets. Ethernet services complements Xtel's other well-established services, which include VoIP, SIP trunks and traditional voice services.
In a press release, Flynn, said, “This will allow our wholesalers to offer the benefits of Ethernet services to their clientele, expanding their own brand, and will provide them with a new revenue stream.”
Flynn added that most Ethernet interfaces are generally inexpensive, and often the expense for operating them is lower because equipment, service and operational costs are far more modest. He explained, "Customers can also increase their bandwidth incrementally," Flynn said. "This is a tremendous benefit to companies because they can now pay for what they need and yet can easily increase their bandwidth as they grow."
Flynn said, "Due to its vast network, Xtel is positioned to accommodate the growing demand for Ethernet services from wholesale customers. Today, wholesale customers, and their customers, require more bandwidth than a DS1 or DS3 can feasibly provide, and more reliability and networking options than cable or residential fiber connections can provide. Ethernet fills this need nicely."
Recently, Xtel Communications adopted Salesforce.com (News - Alert), as its customer relationship management provider. Salesforce.com is one of the nation's leading providers of CRM products, with well-known companies including Siemens (News - Alert), Starbucks, Dell and Qualcom.
