Sportradar selects Level 3 to deliver online sports video

Digital sports specialist Sportradar has selected Level 3 to support its new online video delivery for live sporting events.  Level 3’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) will ensure a high-quality end-user experience for Sportradar clients and enable an interruption-free video stream for each of their customers worldwide.

“Many people have experienced the frustration of jittery videos on the Internet – and that can be particularly annoying when they’re following a key match involving their favorite sports team or players,” says Gerald Rubant, sales director, Enterprise Business Germany and Northern Europe at Level 3. “The Level 3 CDN is built to scale to any requirements — even for huge sporting events watched by millions.”

Level 3 CDN services are based on powerful, private connections to major telco and Internet providers. As a result, content has an average of just 1.76 hops to global Internet destinations. The company pairs a robust Internet backbone with advanced and proven content delivery.  This makes the service exceptionally reliable while remaining cost effective.
