Level 3 CDN Launches New High-Speed Content Upload Service

Level 3 Communications has announced that it will offer its Content Delivery Network (CDN) customers a new High-Speed Content Upload service that enables rapid uploading of multimedia content to the Level 3 Origin Storage Platform.
Level 3 has augmented its Origin Storage offering to facilitate the upload and delivery of large files at speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps). To deliver this new service, Level 3 selected Aspera's innovative fasp transport technology for its ability to move data at extremely high speeds, regardless of file size, network conditions and transfer distance. Level 3 is the first CDN provider to fully deploy Aspera's high-speed file transfer technology solution.
With a single 1 Gbps bandwidth connection, Level 3 CDN customers can move a terabyte of data - equivalent to approximately 1,000 full-length feature movies - from New York to Los Angeles in just over two hours.
Cary Capece, Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Aspera. He said: "Level 3 has one of the most-connected fibre networks in the world. Aspera's next-generation fasp transport technology combined with Level 3's CDN provides customers with maximum ingest and transfer speeds, reliability and security - exactly what companies are looking for from their content delivery provider."
The High-Speed Content Upload service comes at no additional cost to Level 3 CDN customers who use Level 3's Origin Storage service, a solution that allows customers to outsource the storage and management of their multimedia content.
Peter Neill, Senior Vice President of Level 3's Content Markets Group, said: "We continually look for ways to expand our CDN service portfolio to meet our customers' growing online needs. Aspera has been a fantastic company to work with, and our new High-Speed Content Upload service is a significant enhancement to outsource the storage and management of their multimedia content.
