XO® WorkTime™ Recognized as a Finalist in the Data Communications Category

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2014) - XO Communications (XO) has been selected as a finalist in this year's Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Edition, an operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable. XO is being recognized as a finalist in the Data Communications category for its innovative, industry-leading mobility application, XO® WorkTime™. Winners will be announced from the finalists during the awards webcast on November 12, 2014.

XO WorkTime is an easy to download mobile Voice over IP (VoIP) application that integrates a company's XO VoIP service with employees' smartphones and laptops -- including personal devices.

All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: technology innovation, financial impact, market validation, compatibility with existing networks, end-user customer experience, and overall level of innovation.

Finalists' applications were judged by an exclusive carrier-only panel of executives from AT&T, CableLabs, Cablevision System Corporation, Comcast, Cox Communications, Inc., Orange, Sprint, TeliaSonera International Carrier, and Verizon.
