Verizon Digital Media Services, the next-generation digital media platform in partnership with India’s largest telecommunications services provider, and Bharti Airtel launched new points of presence (PoPs) in four cities in India – Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and New Delhi. The four PoP installations mark Verizon Digital Media Services’ significant investment into expanding throughout the country, leveraging Airtel’s digital infrastructure as a gateway to India.
Speaking on the occasion, Rob Peters, CTO of Verizon Digital Media Services, said,
“We are expanding our content delivery network in strategic markets that our customers care about, and we have found a long-term partner in Airtel Business. The launch of these strategic PoPs marks the beginning of a strong partnership between Verizon and Airtel Business and further cements our commitment to providing consumers in India, one of the fastest-growing markets for digital media consumption, with exceptional services and quality.”
This partnership will ensure that content on the Verizon Digital Media Services platform can be accessed by digital media consumers in a fast, seamless and reliable way and will improve the experience for users in India. In addition to Airtel’s world-class data center services and unparalleled network across the country, this move enables Verizon Digital Media Services to provide superior digital media experiences to millions of internet users in India.
