Verizon today said it added more than 20 EdgeCast CDN POPs (points of presence) to expand its Digital Media Services.
The new POPs are in cities such as Warsaw, Stockholm, Milan, Vienna, Melbourne, Helsinki, Kaohsiung, Batam, Jakarta and Sao Paulo, said Verizon.
The company also expanded its presence with additional POPs in many cities already served, including London, Madrid, Paris and Amsterdam. These additions offer customers even greater connectivity and performance within these markets.
Since its acquisition of EdgeCast Networks, a top content delivery network, Verizon Digital Media Services is responding by adding direct local connectivity from its network to many of the world’s largest broadband providers. Verizon Digital Media Services plans to add additional global POPs.
James Segil, chief marketing officer, Verizon Digital Media Services, said: “Continuing to add points of presence to our network helps our customers deliver even their largest files quickly and efficiently no matter whether the viewer is watching video, shopping, gaming or sharing content.”
Each new POP is built securely on Verizon Digital Media Services’ latest generation of delivery servers, with pre-built dedicated space for rapid expansion. The POPs have multiple diverse connections into last-mile networks and are provisioned to support the full suite of Verizon EdgeCast services.
