Level 3 launches video cloud service in China

20 June 2014 |


Level 3 Communications has expanded its video cloud services to China through an agreement with China Telecom Global.

The service – which was launched in April – combines Level 3's content delivery, video broadcast and cloud storage capabilities to create a more scalable, secure and streamlined approach to global content distribution.

The move will provide Level 3's customers with access to the Chinese market, while also allowing China Telecom Global’s content customers to distribute content and media services globally.

As part of the agreement, CDN nodes will initially be deployed in Hong Kong, before being rolled out further across the region.

"China is a significant emerging market for content distribution, and China Telecom is an ideal network partner to assist in efficient, high-quality content delivery across the region," said Mark Taylor, VP of media and IP services for Level 3.

"By working with China Telecom we are better able to support our customers' content distribution needs and continued growth within this dynamic market,” he added.
