Level 3 Teams with INTERNEXA for South American CDN Coverage

Level 3 Communications will expand its content delivery network (CDN) services to Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Peru in partnership with INTERNEXA, which operates more than 18,000 kilometers of fiber-optic network across seven countries in South America.

The agreement enables both companies to provide greatly improved International IP content services to their respective customers by taking advantage of Level 3's leading global CDN and INTERNEXA's extensive in-region, fiber-based network.

Level 3's CDN will localize content within Latin America to improve the end-user experience with rich media as well as reduce the amount of bandwidth required. INTERNEXA's expansive in-region network will give content owners greater reach in South America while enabling South American telecommunications carriers to more efficiently access and deliver to their end users reliable, fast-loading rich content, like video, online games, software, music, and other media. Financial terms were not disclosed.http://www.level3.com http://www.internexa.com
