Level 3 Communications, Inc. announced today it has launched its content delivery network (CDN) services into Latin America.

With a highly skilled workforce, local market knowledge and its extensive IP backbone, Level 3 is now able to provide businesses, government institutions and multimedia content providers across the globe with a fast, reliable way to deliver their content throughout Latin America.

“All indicators suggest the Latin American CDN market is poised for high growth over the next five-year period,” stated Dan Rayburn, principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Applications such as over-the-top video and mobile video are still in the early stage of adoption, which are likely to substantially increase in usage as broadband infrastructure across the continent improves and the transactional mechanisms to purchase content-based services are more widely implemented.”

Grupo Z, a Chile-based provider of online audio and video broadcast streaming, has already begun using Level 3’s network to deliver some of its largest events, such as music festivals, soccer matches and peak demand events to broadcasters throughout Latin America.

“As the demand for instant access to online content continues to grow, CDN network performance becomes increasingly critical to providing a world-class viewer experience, and Level 3’s CDN platform allows us to quickly scale to meet that demand,” said Christian Avalos, general manager of Grupo Z. “Level 3’s extensive network reach enables us to provide customers with a single solution for global content distribution.”

“Throughout Latin America, people are spending more time on the Internet purchasing products and downloading videos, music and games, and they want their experience to be simple, fast and seamless,” said Leonardo Barbero, Level 3’s chief marketing officer and senior vice president for Latin America. “Companies throughout the world can tap into this rapidly expanding market and grow their businesses by leveraging Level 3’s personalized service, flexibility and performance of our CDN service.”

Level 3 is changing the business of content delivery by combining the advantages of its own seamless Internet backbone that it operates with a sophisticated and proven CDN. This unique combination allows Level 3 to connect customers with the benefits of its high-performance, highly scalable service — and to deliver those services in a simplified, cost-effective manner.
