G-Core Labs, an international provider of cloud and edge solutions for content delivery, hosting and security, is expanding its infrastructure in the Middle East by adding a new network Point-of-Presence for CDN (content delivery network) and hosting in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
G-Core Labs’ global content delivery network is located on 5 continents. Its total bandwidth exceeds 7 Tbit/sec. The company has more than 50 Points-of-Presence now; about 4,000 peering partners; agreements with major operators; and an ISP license. The average response time of G-Core Labs’ network in Tel-Aviv would be 21 msec, according to the analytical system provided by Citrix.
“Today, the Middle East is one of the world’s fastest growing markets from the point of view of digital content consumption,” said Andre Reitenbach, managing director of G-Core Labs. “Analysts predict the growth of the local segment of online video by 22% over the next 5 years, due to the large number of young people who are refusing the cable and ordering digital subscriptions, the active development of new streaming platforms and mobile telecommunications.”
“In this regard, the opening of a new Point-of-Presence of our global infrastructure in one of the most important economic centers of the region looks like a logical step,” added Mr. Reitenbach. “It opens up good opportunities for any company developing their business online and having customers or an audience here.”
