level 3 communications inc (LVLT) Key Developments

Level 3 and Optus Enter into CDN Collaboration

Level 3 Communications, Inc. and Optus Wholesale and Satellite have announced that Level 3 is providing caching services that will reportedly enable Optus to locally cache high-demand content on its network. Through its collaboration with Level 3, Optus can now offer its millions of customer's faster deliveries and improved delivery completion rates as well as scale on demand to handle traffic spikes without affecting quality. In addition, Optus can resell Level 3's content delivery network, or CDN, services across Australia.

Level 3 Communications and Telefonica Business Solutions Enter into Interconnection Agreement

Level 3 Communications and Telefonica Business Solutions through its Wholesale Business unit have established a non-exclusive, bilateral interconnection agreement related to their public IP networks. The interconnection agreement ensures customers on the two networks can continue to exchange data effectively and efficiently. As customers' thirst for larger content delivery and real-time communication applications continues to grow, Internet service providers are choosing to work together to create a dynamic, flexible network environment. As part of the agreement, both companies will add capacity and establish new interconnection locations between the two networks to stay ahead of growing traffic demands, thus offering flexibility for each network while improving performance and reliability for their respective customers.

Verne Global Works with Level 3 Communications, Inc. to Provide New Global Connectivity for Customers

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.
