Plano, Texas (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
XOP Networks, Inc develops and manufactures value added service platforms with applications enabling Voice Mail, Mass Notification, Audio Conferencing, Web Conferencing and Enhanced Firebar, today announced that they have been selected to participate in the Innovation Showcase at the OPASTCO Winter Convention, January 17-21, 2009 Kauai, Hawaii. OPASTCO is a national trade association that represents more than 600 independently owned local exchange carriers (LECs) and their affiliate telecommunications companies.
The OPASTCO Winter Convention brings together independently owned LEC's from all over the United States to review the latest developments in the telecommunications market. This year's OPASTCO Winter Convention theme is "Riding the Wave of New Opportunities" and XOP Networks is pleased to be able to present one of the new opportunities at the Innovation Showcase.
XOP Networks has continually distinguished itself by introducing innovative services on its Universal Service Node platfrom. XOP Networks will highlight the "Graceful Migration of Value Added Services" when a LEC transitions from legacy TDM networks to next generation VoIP network in the Innovation Showcase. This migration is enabled by the ability of the Universal Service Node to connect to both TDM networks and VoIP networks at the same time. "We are very pleased and excited that the XOP Networks has been selected by OPASTCO to show the capabilities of our Universal Service Node in this year's Innovation Showcase." said Sudhir Gupta, XOP Networks Founder and CEO.
The Universal Service Node enables improved productivity for LEC's and their customers by providing low cost Voice Mail, Mass Notification, Audio Conferencing, Web Conferencing and Enhanced Firebar applications over legacy TDM and next generation VoIP networks. The primary benefit to the LEC's is that all applications run on one platform, saving 75% CapEx and 50% OpEx.
About XOP Networks
Beginning in 2003, XOP Networks embarked on developing a next generation IP based service and application platform. Realizing this vision, we shipped our first product, a Digital Collaboration Bridge (DCB) in 2004. A DCB combines rich Audio Conferencing with Desktop sharing, Application sharing and White boarding, thus creating a collaborative experience for the end users.
Leveraging the success of the DCB, the product portfolio was expanded in 2005 to include the Group Alerting and Conferencing Server (GACS). The GACS allows mass notification messages to be dispatched over a variety of communications networks, while it brings an organization's brain trust into a quick audio conference. Year 2006 saw the addition of the enhanced Voice Mail Server (VMS) to the product line. In 2007 XOP Networks launched its Universal Service Node (USN) which offers multiple value added services on one platform. Flexibility of our product's architecture allows us to quickly customize our solutions to fit the needs of our customers.
Headquartered in Plano, Texas at 5508 West Plano Parkway XOP Networks was founded in 2002 and is backed by a seasoned management team. Deployed at multiple Fortune 100 companies and CLEC/IOC customers, XOP Networks' products allow customers to improve employee productivity, increase business efficiency and promote business continuity.
