Perseus Launches EdgePath™ for Gaming, Content and Media

New York - 5 March 2015

Perseus, a managed service provider of global high-speed connectivity, today announced that it has launched EdgePath™, a fully managed service that offers colocation and hosting for the iGaming, digital advertising, eCommerce, and media & broadcast industries. Now users in these highly competitive industries will have access to a highly reliable, low-latency global network with edge colocation in developed and emerging markets.

When combined with the award-winning global connectivity solutions Perseus provides, EdgePath offers a unique opportunity for businesses to expand their services to a variety of emerging markets. Similar to Perseus’ LiquidPath® solution for the financial industry, EdgePath gets content from one market to another in record speed, removing the heavy lifting that is normally required. EdgePath is deployed in numerous cities, including New York, Miami, Dublin, London, Frankfurt, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Santiago and Johannesburg, with Los Angeles, Seattle, Istanbul, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Tokyo expected to go live in Q2 2015.

“Speed between markets is pivotal and the gaming, media and broadcast industries in particular are constantly looking for ways to reduce latency and enhance the delivery of their services,” said Wendell Kadunce, President of Perseus TMT business unit. “LiquidPath has already set speed connectivity records for the financial services industry, so we expect EdgePath to do the same thing for these verticals.”

In addition to blazing fast global deterministic connectivity between markets, EdgePath provides application and content providers, caching networks and CDNs with access to markets and eyeballs around the world. Included in the service wrap is precision time, fiber optical and wireless access solutions, hardware-as-a-service, storage-as-a-service, equipment acquisition and consulting services. Perseus provides these services where it is needed most, at the edge in emerging and frontier markets as well as established markets.
