XO Communications' Blog

About Ramani Pandurangan

I've spent the last ten years overseeing the architecture, design, testing and implementation of voice over IP (VoIP) technologies and platforms across the XO network. My role includes support of the company's award-winning business and wholesale VoIP services, and the transformation of the XO voice network from a circuit switched environment to one based on VoIP and softswitch platforms.

I'm an active speaker and panelist in the telecommunications and networking event circuit and participate in several standards bodies including ATS and ITU. I graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Master's degree in Computer Science. I also hold a Master's in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick and an MBA from McGill University. I enjoy tennis, hockey (Montreal Canadians fan), music, and Star Trek.
