BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:LVLT) today announced it has signed an agreement to provide MPLS-based data networking and other services to Teliris Ltd., a leading provider of virtual meeting solutions to corporate customers.

Under the terms of the agreement, Level 3 is supporting Teliris’ “GlobalTable” service in both Europe and North America. GlobalTable is a multi-screen, multi-location conferencing solution that offers DVD-quality video and audio, signal delay below perceptible thresholds, and real-time collaboration tools.

Specifically, Teliris is using (3)FlexSM, a high-performance data networking service from Level 3 that delivers the same reliability and security as traditional ATM with the economics of Internet Protocol. (3)Flex allows the convergence of video, voice and data reliably and securely over the Level 3 network.

“We believe GlobalTable represents a true breakthrough experience in virtual meeting technology,” said Marc Trachtenberg, Teliris co-founder and chief technology officer. “Through this new agreement, we can provide broadcast-quality video and audio to our customers and expand into new locations quickly and cost-effectively. We are pleased to be partnering with Level 3 and look forward to delivering even higher levels of service to our customers.”

“Teliris provides one of the premier conferencing solutions available on the market today, and we are firmly committed to meeting their needs for high-quality network performance,” said Brady Rafuse, president of Level 3’s operations in Europe. “With (3)Flex, we are able to support the demanding requirements of the GlobalTable offering while also delivering the cost efficiencies inherent to Level 3’s MPLS-based network platform.”
