level 3 communications inc (LVLT) Key Developments

Level 3 Lays Off Employees

Level 3 Communications Inc. is laying off an unknown number of employees as it eliminates some duplicative positions following its $5.3 billion merger with TW Telecom. It isn't clear how many employees of the company are affected.

BMW Selects Level 3 Communications, Inc. for Content Delivery Network services

Level 3 Communications, Inc. announced that BMW is using Level 3 Content Delivery Network (CDN) services to speed the information flow between its Munich headquarters and its more than 4,000 dealers around the world. Level 3's CDN is part of a major BMW infrastructure upgrade project tailored to BMW's precise requirements. BMW is using the Level 3 CDN service to send large volumes of high-bandwidth data to its global dealers, replacing the DVD-based distribution that the company used for several years. The solution is designed with a very high level of redundancy to ensure maximum availability at all times. Dealers utilize the information to securely access key information, as well as configure vehicles for customers, apply software patches or upgrade navigation systems. Delivering it in this way further increases dealer and customer satisfaction, while leading to cost savings. Since changing to the Level 3 CDN, BMW enables its dealers to react much faster to customer requirements. BMW staff uploads the relevant information assets to the Level 3 storage platform. Dealers then connect to the platform following authentication. The solution automatically detects where the dealer is located and will select a server to provide fast and reliable performance. The CDN solution then checks the Web URL and login credentials of the dealer, who can then download the data in seconds. Dealers are essential to BMW's success and to the way the brand is perceived by customers. That is why offering them the best possible service to get the data they need quickly, regardless of the volume, is important. Level 3 has strong local presence, with specialists available in Germany and an exemplary performance and support team across global markets. In addition to this project, Level 3 provided fibre optic cables that connect BMW's headquarters directly to the Level 3 global network, including two additional routers located directly at BMW's premises in Munich. These ensure the protection against downtime along with maximum bandwidth at all times to global partners. With its global network, Level 3 provides the bandwidth BMW needs to share large quantities of data with its dealers and business partners globally.
