Geo Plugs Into EdgeCast's CDN

LONDON -- Geo Networks (Geo), a provider of high-performance fibre networks, today announced that EdgeCast Networks, the world's fastest and most reliable content delivery network (CDN), has chosen Geo’s dark fibre to deploy a new London infrastructure for transferring media files and applications to its ISP customers. The win marks significant expansion in the media and broadcast sector for Geo.

This two year deal sees Geo provide a highly resilient, low-latency network directly between EdgeCast data centres in London. Three fibre pairs, one of which is a diverse route, connect the Telecity sites in Docklands, with a fourth route travelling to Telehouse East.

“Having reviewed other fibre network provider offerings, we chose Geo because its network aligns perfectly with our requirements. The digital content explosion means that web users are consuming an increasingly broad range of media and this is driving a significant demand for bandwidth for CDNs,” said Mike Kleiman, CFO at EdgeCast. “The Geo network enables us to confidently transfer content to our customers with the knowledge that it is secure and will be delivered quickly to their end users. Geo’s historic high network availability levels were a key consideration.”
