Steve Nocella, Senior Vice President of Network Services at XO Communications
We chose TNS to support our STPs and to provide SS7 services to XO because of its extensive SS7 network coverage, reputation and expertise. We have worked with TNS previously and seen first-hand its proven performance and dedicated service.
TNS Delivers Critical Managed STP Solution to XO Communications
XO Communications is one of the US’ largest communications service providers and is focused exclusively on businesses, government, carrier and wholesale service organizations. It has more than 90,000 customers and carries over 20 billion Voice over IP (VoIP) minutes each year.
XO Communications was in search of a provider that could deliver a Managed STP solution to proactively run the XO Communications signaling network, perform augmentations, monitor the network traffic, deliver Business Intelligence reports and provide back-office support.
TNS will manage the STP architecture, connectivity and signaling layer for XO Communications. As part of this solution, TNS moves XO into the future by migrating XO from end-of-life equipment to Next Generation SS7 solutions. Additionally, TNS will manage the SS7 network architecture, inclusive of connectivity and signaling, utilizing parameters by which TNS runs XO’s own Global infrastructure. TNS will continue to expand the Network Monitoring modules to increase XO’s Business Intelligence and reduce potential fraud through the network.
In addition to Managed STP, TNS will also provide CNAM storage and delivery services, TCAP-CLASS, trunk signaling, Location Validation Services, Local Number Portability information and SS7 connectivity.
