HERNDON, Va. – April 14, 2016 – XO Communications (XO) has won the TMC 2016 Unified Communications (UC) Product of the Year Award for its Hosted PBX (HPBX) service. The award honors the best, most innovative unified communications products and solutions released in the last twelve months.

XO HPBX provides businesses of all sizes with the collaboration tools they need to communicate using their desktop HPBX phones, computers or other mobile devices, regardless of their location. Beyond the initial capabilities of the service, XO offers a high tech support model that includes on-site customer training as well as an optional and personalized Concierge service that enables XO to change, add or delete phone numbers and modify certain features at the direction of an XO HPBX customer. Like many other related offerings, XO HPBX is available on the XO secure, private network which supports the quality of service levels that businesses demand.

"It gives me great pleasure to honor XO Communications as a 2016 recipient of TMC's Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative product, Hosted PBX," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by XO in their groundbreaking work on Hosted PBX."
