Verne Global Works with Level 3 Communications, Inc. to Provide New Global Connectivity for Customers
Jun 9 15
Verne Global has turned to Level 3 Communications, Inc. to implement an Internet Protocol (IP)-driven Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Iceland. The collaboration will help meet demand from Verne Global's customers to connect to more than 40 new countries accessible through direct connectivity to Level 3's global network. Verne Global, with its carrier-neutral campus located in Iceland, is committed to offer customers connectivity on a worldwide scale. Level 3 served customers with Content Delivery Network (CDN) services via Reykjavik, but did not have an existing IP-driven PoP connecting to its global network in Iceland – leading both companies to explore how to connect the Level 3 infrastructure into Verne Global's data centre campus. Once the connection of the Level 3 network into Verne Global's Iceland data centre campus is complete, Verne Global's customers will be able to access Level 3's global network and extensive portfolio of IP, Virtual Private Network, CDN, cloud and collaboration solutions.
