Seacom gets Level 3 content nodes

Seacom said in a press statement on Tuesday, 20 May 2014, that it is working with global network provider Level 3 Communications.

Level 3 will deploy its content delivery network (CDN) nodes into data centres connecting to the Seacom Pan-African IP/MPLS network.

Using these CDN nodes, Seacom said that Level 3 will enable rich, high-quality content to be delivered directly to operators and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that interconnect with Seacom’s IP/MPLS network.

For African end-users, this should translate into improved latency and faster speeds as they access media streaming, file downloads, web pages, music, videos, software updates and other popular content available on Level 3.

“Providing Seacom with Level 3 CDN connectivity in its Mombasa facility is an important part of our expansion strategy of working with select partners to enhance the Internet experience in the region,” said Martin Ford, senior vice president of sales for EMEA at Level 3 Communications.
