Level 3 Communications Inc. (LVLT) has been selected by the company operating as Metaboli in Europe and GameTap in North America, to exclusively deliver caching and download services in support of their online gaming offer. With a network of more than 50 partner sites, the gaming platform uniquely provides Games on Demand, a subscription-based service, and Download to Own, a service where games are purchased outright.
“As our business continues to grow both in Europe and North America, it is important that our underlying CDN provider delivers consistently great quality and has the capacity to handle peak loads and flash events, without compromising on the overall online gaming experience,” said Olivier Decrock, CEO of Metaboli. “Level 3 has given us a great solution and their seamless global footprint is important to the development of our business model.”
Level 3 has been working with Metaboli in Europe since early 2009, delivering a solution to support the European platform. Following strong performance and excellent quality of service, Metaboli selected the Level 3 caching solution for the re-launch of the North American GameTap platform.
“Level 3 has a network designed to support the high quality experience demanded by online gamers today,” said James Heard, president of Level 3’s European Markets Group. “We are delighted to be supporting the Metaboli and GameTap platforms and understand the value that a global solution brings. Our strong heritage in IP-based networking and the quality of our content delivery platform offers a unique expertise to the market.”
