i3D.net Enhances Online Gaming Experience With Level 3
Level 3 Communications is enabling global managed hosting provider, i3D.net, to enhance the experience of customers worldwide and expand its business into Latin America by connecting to Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Netherlands-based i3D.net is renowned for its expertise in game-hosting. Almost all of the enterprise-level game publishers work with i3D.net due to its expertise in scalability, mass deployment and ultra-low latency. More than one million people per day play games on i3D.net’s 10,000 servers, located at 16 datacenter locations worldwide. The company is focused on delivering the best online experience for gamers wherever they are located, and meeting the growing demand by publishers for game hosting in new markets, including Latin America.
Level 3 is supporting i3D.net in meeting both challenges. By providing High-Speed IP (HSIP) connectivity services to the company, game publishers and their end-users can benefit from enhanced online performance. The company’s expansion drive into Latin America is supported by the addition of Level 3 datacenter point-of-presence (PoP) connectivity in Sao Paulo, enabling i3D.net’s customers in the region to access locally-delivered content.
Stijn Koster, CEO, i3D.net explained: “By leveraging Level 3’s HSIP services, we can provide our customers with the benefits of locally-delivered services, including reduced latency and increased stability, reliability and performance. Adding connectivity to Level 3’s PoP in Sao Paulo means we can continue our expansion drive and deliver our services to customers in Latin America too.”
“As a company, we are dedicated to supporting businesses to meet their objectives around growth, efficiency and security,” said Andrew Crouch, Regional President, EMEA and GAM Division, Level 3. “i3D.net is a clear example of how Level 3 customers can benefit from one of the fastest and most connected global IP networks in the world and expand beyond Europe into new markets worldwide.”
