By Stephen Brown | | 0
Level 3 CDN customers benefit from having access to one of the highest performing content delivery network providers available. With many high performance points of presence located around the globe, the Level 3 CDN can serve data to end users all across the world with lightning speed.
As a testament to the quality of the Level 3 CDN, many big name brands have signed up to use content delivery services from the CDN giant. This includes the 2016 Democratic National Convention, which last month announced that they were utilising the Level 3 CDN as the Official Video Transport Services Provider for the 2016 convention in Philadelphia which took place between July 25th to the 28th. The specific Level 3 services used were a portfolio of Vyvx broadcast services which facilitated seamless video support of the event. This isn’t the first time the Democratic National Convention has used the Level 3 CDN, having also leveraged the platform in 2008 and 2012.

Voters expect 24-hour access to the Democratic National Convention events and presentations, and Level 3 is proud to provide the infrastructure and capabilities for efficient and secure delivery of convention coverage.”
Furthermore, Andrew Binns, CIO of the Democratic National Convention added, “Level 3 has a proven record of delivering some of the most-watched sports, entertainment and political events, including the 2008 and 2012 Democratic National Conventions, and we are delighted to be working with them again.”
