You gotta give XO Communications credit just for being part of the conversation. Here’s a company that’s been selling to mainly small and medium-sized companies for seemingly forever, generally touting whatever is the latest trendy thing. But these days it’s also at least discussed as a large enterprise player, owing to its early entry into SIP Trunking, a product that’s stuck in the marketplace for both small and large businesses.
Yet one big problem for XO has always been: Who owns you, exactly, and why should that make anyone feel good about you? Well, that might become an easier question to answer if a midsummer red-letter day proves to be significant.
