Valve Upgrades to 100G for its Online Gaming Service

Valve, an online gaming company, selected Level 3 Communications to upgrade its network infrastructure to include 100 Gbps ports.

The upgrade is in response to the substantial rise in popularity of digital services and online games provided by Steam, Valve's social entertainment and gaming platform. The new ports will give Valve the bandwidth necessary to continue providing an optimal experience as Steam's audience size and usage expands. Valve's Steam gaming platform has over 100 million users, averaging more than 10 million concurrent players and over two billion minutes played logged per day. Traffic levels to Steam's servers are growing approximately 75 percent year-over-year.
