CenturyLink expands CDN service capability

Company increases scope of digital content delivery services for over-the-top video, gaming and other organisations.

Triggered by increasing demand for over-the-top (OTT) content delivery in EMEA, CenturyLink has expanded its content delivery network (CDN) service capabilities in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania and significantly increased capacity in existing core sites in Europe. This investment demonstrates CenturyLink's commitment to providing scalable, highly available and resilient content delivery solutions to OTT providers, broadcasters and gaming companies, allowing them to connect with new audiences in new markets across the globe.



"As demand continues to grow for OTT content in EMEA, increasing the reach of our CDN services is critical in enabling our customers to deliver the best possible user experience, including in difficult to serve locations around the globe," said Rory McVicar, director of product management, internet and content delivery services, CenturyLink.


As part of this EMEA CDN service capabilities expansion, CenturyLink has added a new point of presence (PoP) in Zagreb, Croatia to enhance service performance in the country. In addition, the company has augmented its CDN capacity in other key locations in EMEA that are experiencing the greatest growth in online traffic including the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the Nordics.
