Level 3 makes South African expansion

Level 3 Communications has expanded its Vyvx broadcast capabilities into South Africa, in a move that will allow companies like domestic firms like Telemedia to broadcast video content internationally.

Level 3’s new Vyvx Point of Presence in Johannesburg means companies in South Africa will now be able to more rapidly transmit live sports, breaking news and other video content to international audiences.

The access point also mean companies in North America, Western Europe and Latin America can more easily deliver their broadcast content to South Africa, said Level 3, announcing the deal at IBC.

Level 3 is a global communications services firm that offers services including fibre and infrastructure solutions, IP-based voice and data communications, wide-area Ethernet services, video and content distribution, and data centre and cloud-based solutions. The firm serves customers in more than 500 markets in 55 countries using a global services platform that is anchored by owned fibre networks on three continents and connected by extensive undersea facilities.
