Level 3 Communications announced the launch of a new cloud-based file transfer platform that simplifies and accelerates the process of sending large video and data files, such as syndicated content and advertising files.
The new service was developed to meet increasing demand from network broadcast and other media companies to move content to remote locations around the world.
These companies are looking for faster, more reliable alternatives to mail service carriers and slow-moving file transfer protocol (FTP) sites to send content to and from locations worldwide. Level 3's Cloud Content Exchange leverages Level 3's extensive worldwide storage platform and global network connectivity to enable companies to quickly and securely exchange content on a global scale via the cloud.
Cloud Content Exchange stores media files in a central, cloud-based library where they can be metatagged, sorted and accessed in real time with rapid upload and download speeds. FOX Broadcasting Company was the first to beta test the service.
