Level 3 brings its CDN expertise to the FBI

Level 3 Communications (Nasdaq: LVLT) is finding that its content delivery network CDN services are applicable to other vertical market segments outside the video industry as illustrated by its recent win with the FBI.

Working in conjunction with the FBI's prime contract holder Human Touch, Level 3 will provide its CDN services to improve the performance of the FBI's main website, www.fbi.gov.

Among the many improvements will be faster content refreshing, better traffic monitoring capabilities, in addition to enhancing security and cutting costs associated with running a website.

To support the FBI's agency-wide website update effort, Level 3 will deliver caching services for the site, local homepages for the department's 56 field offices across the country in addition to its site for citizens to report suspected terrorism or criminal activity, https://tips.fbi.gov.
