According to CenturyLink there’s increased demand for delivery of high-performing web applications, ultra-high-definition (UHD) video streaming and game downloads.
Francis Thangasamy, vice president, product management and services, CenturyLink Asia Pacific said, “Expanding our physical network footprint in APAC while enabling performance improvements in hard to reach markets with our hybrid, peer-assisted CDN can provide CenturyLink customers a true competitive advantage”.
“Our high-performing global CDN leverages consumer device telemetry, data science and disruptive edge delivery methodologies to help improve user experience during peak traffic hours and minimise the risk of inadequate or inaccurate planning for large events.
“We are also excited to share that CenturyLink is providing services for a prominent company that will broadcast a major sports event next year in Japan.”
CenturyLink recently acquired video delivery solutions provider Streamroot and its peer-assisted streaming and multi-CDN capabilities as part of its strategic CDN expansion plans.
Streamroot's disruptive content delivery model incorporates consumer devices into an edge-based delivery architecture offering the ability to achieve performance otherwise not feasible with conventional CDN delivery methods.
