      [Via Satellite 06-04-2015] Level 3 is providing deep-edge caching services to Optus Wholesale and Satellite that will enable Optus to locally cache high-demand content on its network. The agreement gives Optus quicker access to content while growing Level 3’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) capacity in Australia by 300 percent.

      This collaboration enables Optus to offer customers faster deliveries and improved delivery completion rates as well as scale on demand to handle traffic spikes without affecting quality. In addition, Optus can resell Level 3’s CDN services across Australia.

      “Through Level 3’s CDN, we are able to improve the consumption of video, music, photo and data content over the Internet, not just locally within Australia, but also across the globe,” said Rob Parcell, managing director of Optus Wholesale and Satellite. “Broadcasting customers and website owners with rich media content will benefit from the deployment of this CDN network.”
