XO Communications' Blog

About Steve Carter

I'm responsible for the design, development and management of XO's VoIP, SIP trunking and Hosted PBX services and I'm based out of Herndon, VA. I led the launch of XO's SIP Trunking services and developed new capabilities for our VoIP and SIP services. I helped XO win the 2007 and 2009 Internet Telephony Product-of-the-Year for XO SIP and XO Enterprise SIP. I've got more than 20 years of product development and management experience in wireless, data, telecom, and IP services. When not sleeping, eating and sipping (pun intended) telecom, I enjoy spending time with my wife of 22 years, three boys and three dogs.
